I registered as a pharmacist in 1989 and worked as a hospital pharmacist 1989-2015. 1989-1999 I worked at Leeds General Infirmary in various roles including as a Resident pharmacist, Care of the Elderly, Intensive Care and Formulary Management pharmacist .

1999-2015 I worked at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust as a Medicine and Care of the Elderly pharmacist and a Senior Antimicrobial Pharmacist. In addition, I worked as a GP Practice Pharmacist in Calderdale between 2001-2003.

2015 I started  work as an Academic Pharmacist. Between 2015-2018 I was a Clinical Academic Lecturer at the University of Manchester and lead for Postgraduate Advanced Clinical Skills (a short course aimed at pharmacists working in the emergency department). 

In December 2017 I joined the University of Bradford as an Assistant Professor in Pharmacy Practice and lead for the postgraduate taught clinical pharmacy programmes for pharmacists working in Primary Care. In 2020 I became the lead for the new MSc/PGDip Foundation Pharmacy Practice (multi-sector) programme, which is a postgraduate pharmacy practice programme for early career pharmacists.

 My specialist area of teaching for undergraduate and postgraduate students is antimicrobials, antimicrobial stewardship and antimicrobial resistance. I have an interest in pedagogical research, in particular how students learn about antimicrobial stewardship.
