I joined the ambulance service in 2000 and became a registered paramedic in 2004. In 2015 I joined the education and training team for East Midlands Ambulance Service as a Clinical Practice Tutor. I was involved in the development of a new Ambulance Technician course in partnership with Nottingham Trent University.
I have a love of teaching, particularly facilitating students at the beginning of their careers. It gives me immense satisfaction to see these individuals flourishing as healthcare professionals. I am passionate about inter-professional education and encourage cross discipline teaching whenever possible.
My areas of interest include:
Improving ambulance clinician approach to end of life care
Pre-hospital care of elderly patients
Improving staff resilience in all healthcare disciplines
Feasibility of external compression of the abdominal aorta for control of catastrophic post-partum haemorrhage by ambulance clinicians
