About me

I joined UWE as a senior lecturer in July 2013, and in September (2015) I became a module leader for the postgraduate module "Physical Assessment and Clinical Reasoning (PACR)". 

Prior to this I was a clinical nurse specialist in the urodynamic unit at Southmead Hospital/North Bristol Trust, and senior research nurse in the Bristol Urological Institute. During this time, I introduced nurse-led urodynamic clinics, which included clinical assessment and diagnostic reasoning/practice. In 2012, I set up the sacral nerve stimulation service with Mr Hashim (Urology Consultant) for urology patients in Bristol and the South West region.​ 

I have worked in a variety of clinical practice settings - care of the elderly, orthopaedics and trauma, accident & emergency, critical care, urodynamics and urology research. I was a course tutor for the Bristol Urological Institute 'Basic Urodynamic Course', 'Certificate in Urodynamics' (2000 - 2014), and latterly at advanced level for the 'Expert in Urodynamics Course' (2013 - present). I can teach on any aspect of clinical urodynamic practice (routine, video, ambulatory, paediatrics), in addition to all the technical aspects of urodynamics. I am also actively involved with urodynamic educational workshops on a national and international level, and was co-founder (2009) of the first International Continence Society conference ​'hands on' urodynamic workshop (2009, 2011, 2012). This educational workshop model was well received, and has since been rolled out to the British Association of Urological Nurses (2013, 2015), and European Association of Urology conferences (2013, 2014, 2015).

In 2008, I received the prestigious lifelong award of Florence Nightingale Foundation (FNF) Scholar, following the successful completion of my FNF Scholarship (Band Trust) 2006-2007.
