Barts Health NHS Trust

I have been a nurse for 32 years. I specialised in critical care working at The Royal London Hospital, St Bartholomew’s Hospital and The London Chest Hospital. I was a Matron for Critical care and cardiothoracic surgery at St Bartholomew’s Hospital and then an Associate Director of Nursing for Emergency Care, Acute and Specialist Medicine at Newham University Hospital. I am currently the Director for Nursing, Midwifery and AHP education for Barts Health NHS Trust. Workforce innovation, development and support has been a key priority and focus for me throughout my career and is integral to my current role.
