I have worked in the NHS for 24 years in following areas:
- Orthopaedic Rehabilitation
- Medicine (Haematology, Diabetes, Elderly care)
- Emergency Medicine
- NHS Direct – Nurse Advise
- Public Health/Health Promotion – Smoking Cessation Services
- Governance - Patient Quality, Patient Safety Manager & Risk and Compliance Manager
My previous role in Governance has involved supporting the development, co-ordination, implementation and evaluation of patient quality in relation to risk and compliance systems and processes. This included areas such as CQC, NHSLA, CNST, Risk Management, Policies, NICE guidance and Audit. I have taken part and lead on external and internal visits such as Appreciative Enquiries and Internal Audit with CQC.
I joined education in 2012 and work with the University of Wolverhampton as a Senior Adult Lecturer (Adult Nursing Pre-registration). This has involved working across campuses (City, Walsall and Burton) contributing to the provision of quality learning and teaching within the Faculty. I work with the SUCCESS group (service users and carers contributing to educating students for services) which has beneficial to students in their development. I hope to support and enhance the quality of learning and assessment in practice for pre-registration student nurses and provide support to mentors/ staff/managers in carrying out their role effectively. I am currently working as Deputy Award to the Adult Nursing Programme.
