Experience in industry

I joined the University in 2017, previous to this I worked in a variety of roles within the NHS including emergency care, community care, and midwifery. Most recently, I worked with vulnerable teenage parents and their families in the delivery of the Family Nurse Partnership programme. This was an evidence-based programme which aimed to promote child-parent attachment to promote self-efficacy and positive outcomes. I also have extensive experience working within interprofessional teams to safeguard vulnerable children and young people.
