About me

I have been employed clinically in South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust since 2002.  I graduated with a BSc (hons) in Urgent and Emergency Care Practice and was then awarded funding through the HEE/NIHR Integrated Clinical Academic Programme for non-medical healthcare professions to complete my MClinRes.  I have been employed as a research paramedic in the ambulance service since 2014.

I am now based at UWE as a Senior Research Fellow in Paramedic Science.  My research areas of interest include improving outcomes from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, clinical decision-making, paramedic health and well-being, sepsis, safety netting, end of life care and improving triage of emergency calls. 

I enjoy the challenge of prehospital research and the opportunity to improve the care of patients and the working lives of paramedics.
