Personal profile


Position: Director of Postgraduate Professional Programmes, School of Pharmacy

Clinical adademic and senior practitioner, Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge

Current post
Lindsay leads the Postgraduate Education Team, with oversight of the design, coordination and delivery of training programmes delivered to pharmacists throughout the East of England and accross all patient-facing sectors. She is also a senior clinical pharmacist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge where she specialises in clinical education and training and maintains practice in the surgical specialism. She leads the Prescribing and Therapeutics Curriculum for students of Cambridge Medical School, as well as providing teaching on core neuropharmacology.  

She has an interest in clinical pharmacology and was awarded her PhD for a body of work exploring age-related neuronal decline in central nervous systems.  She translates this into specific teaching on core central nervous system physiology, biology, pharmacology and therapeutics.  She is also interested in the evolution of pharmacist education from undergraduate through to consultant-level practice, and the development of novel learning opportunities, environments and formative assessments to facilitate individual development in the workplace.  Routinely, she works with NHS employers, professional bodies and commissioners of education to design and deliver the most effective, most efficient, most behaviour changing learning experiences to enhance the development of newly qualified pharmacists.

More recently Lindsay has developed an interest in Female Reproductive Health and is pursuing projects that would enhance access to reproductive healthcare through pharmacist-led initiatives.
