Editor in Chief of the British Journal of Primary Care Nursing.
As above plus independent and supplementary prescriber qualification and Post graduate award Diabetes Therapeutics (University of Warwick).
In May 2015 I joined the ranks of the Queen’s Nursing Institute as a Queen’s Nurse. The title is available to individual nurses who have demonstrated a high level of commitment to patient care and nursing practice.
Synopsis of current roles
I have a useful mix of theory and practice in my role as both hands-on health care professional and clinical lecturer. I am a nurse practitioner/prescriber and having worked in general practices across the Midlands since 1984, I am now working in a rural practice in the Cotswolds. I also work as a clinical lead for diabetes at Education for Health and am a guest lecturer on the MSc in preventive cardiology at Imperial College.
I write extensively for a range of journals on diabetes and other subjects. Recent publications include Prescribing for Type 2 Diabetes (British Journal for Cardiac Nursing); Obesity and Diabetes (Nursing Standard), Patient-centred Prescribing in Diabetes (Journal of Practice Nursing) and Prevention of Diabetes (Practice Nurse).
