About

Currently a Lecturer in Physician Associate Studies at the University of Wolverhampton, a Physician Associate in Acute Stroke at Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust and a Physician Associate in General Practice at Gnosall Medical Practice.  I have worked as a PA across multiple specialities up and down the United Kingdom, from a Specialist Surgical Rotation in Scotland to a busy General Practice in West Sussex.  I qualified form the University of Wolverhampton December 2009 in Physician Associate Studies and completed my re-certification exam in 2013.  I have been on the PAMVR since its conception and I have been a strong advocate for PAs, even discussing the role on national radio.  My previous iteration was in Biomedical Science, working in Histopathology.
