Personal profile

Biography

I qualified as a Physiotherapist in 1996, working clinically in respiratory medicine before entering higher education.  I have over 20 years experience in higher education, working across allied health, nursing and medical education. During this time I have held a number of academic posts at Keele, Oxford Brookes, Open and Anglia Ruskin University.  


I have a keen interest in NHS workforce developments and Higher Education policy. I also continue to publish in the field of medical sociology of diagnosis of medically unexplained syndromes and have a specific interest in the research methodology of meta-synthesis.
