I am an Operating Department Practitioner with sixteen years’ experience working in theatres, specialising in the roles of Anaesthetic and Recovery practitioner. Before leaving clinical practice I was Clinical Practice Facilitator for anaesthesia. As part of this I was a faculty member at The Learning Hospital at the UCH Education Centre, focusing on Clinical Simulation.

I joined the Perioperative Practice Team at LSBU in 2019 as a Lecturer. I currently teach Undergraduate ODP students and apprentices.

I also teach Post Graduate Theatre Nurses, leading the CPPD modules Principles of Operating Department Care and Evidence Based Operating Department Care.

I have recently contributed to the latest edition of the book Fundamentals of Operating Department Practice, co-authoring a chapter with another of the Perioperative Practice Team, Joanne Fielding.

Although not currently engaged in any research, I am interested in exploring how established hierarchies and team dynamics within the theatre environment can impact on patient care.
