I have been a paediatric nurse since 1979 and spent 24 years in practice which included specialist burns unit care, general surgical and medical paediatrics, and community children’s nursing before becoming a lecturer in children’s nursing at the University of Bradford. This has given me a sound knowledge across a range of child health care specialities. I have enhanced this knowledge through speaking at conferences on child health issues and through publication of academic research, papers and a book on child care issues. I have good links with many academics and practitioners through my previous working roles and through external review work.

Located in the School of Nursing, Faculty of Health Studies, I am now a Senior Lecturer who has management responsibility for a team of 13 lecturers. As a member of the School of Nursing management team, I deputise for the Head of School periodically and contribute to the strategic and operational management of the School of Nursing.

I remain committed to children’s nursing in both hospital and community settings and am particularly interested in trying to ensure that good quality care and research continues to be published to enhance the professional standing of child health care.
