Placement Expansion Lead: Social Care
I’m working as a Placement Expansion Lead focussing on Social Care and the PVI sector. Developing capacity in this area to show the great work that’s done outside of the NHS and hospital and community care. Helping people maintain their independence is vital to living longer and healthier.
I am utilising my skills as an ANP in a very different way helping to develop the next generation of nurses. I’m interested in developing novel ways of supervising and coaching students and this has been an interest since my undergraduate days. Longarm supervision is a way to help students where a registered professional isn’t based in the placement area.
I volunteer at festivals with Festival Medical Service and am a Queen’s Nurse.
In my free time, I sew, crochet and am a reluctant runner. Fitness is something I do to be able to eat cake!!

Training Hub Care Coordinator Profession Lead
I am one of the Care Coordinator Profession Leads for the BNSSG and I share this role with my colleague Lynn Nelson. I work the first part of the week as a Care Coordinator in a large GP surgery in Bristol and the other days in the Training Hub. We hold regular Community of Practice On-line meetings as well as support and training for all Care Coordinators. As the number of Care Coordinators are rapidly increasing and the role is becoming more established in primary care, we are looking to develop training and continuous professional development that it is designed specifically for this role.
In my free time I enjoy taking my dog on long walks around Bristol as well as spending time with my husband and two teenage girls.
Away from work, most of my time is spent walking the countryside on offer all around Bristol.
