I am a registered Operating Department Practitioner and Lecturer in the Institute of Health and Social Care. I joined LSBU in 2019 having previously worked at a renowned busy London trauma centre. The majority of my clinical practice has been spent specialising in the Recovery and anaesthetic aspects of the perioperative environment. During my time in the NHS, I took on the role of clinical practice facilitator supporting students in the clinical theatre area and completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Practice education at LSBU in 2017.
