I currently contribute to pre-registration nursing at Wirral on NM6412.

I am also the module lead for NM5212 at Wirral.

I am the module lead for NM7109 on the SCPHN programme and for  NM6502/NM7088 for the Non-Medical Prescribing programme (V300)  at Wirral.



I have a keen interest in postnatal depression and have undertaken research into the impact that this has on fathers, and the support they receive. This is an area that I intend to explore further through my PhD.

I have also recently undertaken a piece of research as part of my PGCTHE, that explored student nurses perceptions of bursary and non-bursary degree nurse education and the impact upon student experience.
