I am a Senior Lecturer in Mental Health Nursing. I qualified as a Mental Health Nurse in 1995 and have worked at the University of Derby since 2013, initially in the Mental Health Nursing Team delivering teaching on the Nursing Programme. I now teach on the Health and Social Care BSc.

Professional interests

I have a particular interest in the field of Mental Health Law. Part of my previous clinical background was working as an Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP).

Experience in industry

I worked as a mental health nurse for nearly 20 years. I worked across the field of mental health, within an in-patient setting on an Intensive Care Ward and acute admission ward, and in a community setting - both 'working age' and 'older peoples' teams.

I trained and worked as an AMHP (Approved Mental Health Professional) - the first nurse to undertake course within my area at that time.
