CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)-Plans for the next academic year. 

The teaching staff are now beginning to return to the School to resume their academic activities. They are working at a pace to change the way we deliver our courses. Moving forward, we will be using blended and e-learning methods. We aim to roll out the modules, which were postponed during the initial stages of COVID-19, in a phased approach, starting in September 2020, over an eight-month period. This is in line with Health Education England (HEE) who have proposed an extension to the education contract period. This is to allow time for the recovery of commissions that were postponed due to the pandemic.

As you will recognise because of COVID-19, plans are constantly changing so we will, as the situation evolves, endeavour to keep you informed. The health and wellbeing of our staff and students are our absolute priority. 

If you do have any questions or concerns, please refer to our Student Q&A page or contact us at Student Support Services for more information.


I worked as a Registered Nurse for twenty-five years, specialising in cancer nursing. I am very interested in how cancers develop and treatment options as well as their impact on the quality of life of those with cancer and their significant others. I am very interested in personalised medicine and was lucky enough to be a member of the Advisory Panel for the European Oncology Nursing Society’s TARGET Programme.

I feel passionate about education moved over to the Royal Marsden School as a Lecturer Practitioner in 2005. From 2005 until 2017 I focussed on cell biology and treatment of solid tumours. I was Programme Lead for the SGUL MSc until 2017. During 2018 I took some time out returning to the School in 2019. Currently I am working as a Lecturer and am mainly involved in supporting newer member of staff who are settling in to their new roles within the School.

Module Involvement

  • Principles of Breast Cancer Care
  • Principles of Gynaecological Cancer Care
  • I also teach on cell biology in some more generic modules

Other Involvement

I am passionate about supporting students who are studying whilst working. I am exploring ways in which to help students that are struggling with their academic work. I am in the process of further developing our Student Hub which is an area where students can engage with staff and with each other.
