A Registered General Nurse and Senior Lecturer. I originally worked in cardiac care and then acute surgery. My interest in teaching took me to complete my PG Certificate in Education and I have been now been teaching for 29 years. My interest in the legal and ethical aspects of healthcare, lead me to complete a MSc in Healthcare Ethics and a LLM in Legal Aspects of Medical Practice and my teaching and learning is focused in these areas. My current role as Head of School of Nursing & Healthcare Leadership allows me to continue to keep an interest in legal and ethical issues while supporting a team of academic staff to deliver on a wide range of undergraduate and post graduate healthcare professional programmes.
