Areas of interest

I am interested in clinical education, with a particular focus on postgraduate workplace-based programmes. I currently lead the CIPPET team to provide education, training and development for qualified healthcare professionals via a range of workplace-based postgraduate modules and programmes.

I coordinate closely with our stakeholders, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, our professional regulators, and other national and international Higher Education Institutions. I also work at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust as a Lead Women's and Children's Pharmacist.
