I started my post-qualification career initially in bone marrow transplantation and then moved to HIV and haematology, before starting at The Royal Marsden as a Course Nurse in 1995. I then worked in a number of ward-based roles and practice education within the Trust and in collaboration with other hospitals in London.
My interests are mainly in the advances in cancer care and development of staff. I completed my master's research in 2003: An Exploration of Newly Qualified Nurses Experience of Cancer Care. I established and set up the rotation programme for nurses new to cancer care at The Royal Marsden in 2002.
I have a keen interest in the advances in cancer care right across the spectrum, from biological to psychological and social. In the last few years I have developed an interest in clinical leadership, and enjoy the theory and politics of clinical leadership with the NHS and wider arenas.
I am currently module leader for the following modules at degree and postgraduate levels:
- Chemotherapy in Cancer Care
- Enhancing Clinical Leadership
- The Sciences of Cancer Care
- Applying Research to Clinical Practice
- Stem Cell Transplantation in Cancer Practice
- Principles of Head and Neck Cancer Care
- Leadership and Management for Service Improvement
