I qualified as an ODP in 1990, after which I worked in the British Army, the NHS, and private practice. As a senior practitioner I set up anaesthetic support services for a new five theatre department and implemented resuscitation services for the whole unit. I also spent just under two years as a Deputy Theatre Manager in the private sector. My interest is delivery of safe efficient perioperative care with a keen interest in anaesthetic practice and resuscitation including human factors. I have worked part time for the university since 2008 and undertook a full time post in June 2015.
