I am a registered nurse and Associate Professor in the Institute of Health and Social Care School of Nursing and Midwifery. I hold a BSc (Hons) in Nursing, a Masters Degree in Nursing and a Professional Doctorate in Nursing. My main research interest is the link between health and social care, particularly the co-ordination of care for service users, principally care navigation and the role of the care navigator.
