I qualified from Wessex School of Podiatry in 1996 and became a member of the PRCA in 1997. I have been Head Of Podiatry at Hartlepool PCT since June 2003 before which I was Chief Podiatrist at King George Hospital & Whipps Cross University hospital in North East London specialising in Rheumatology. I developed(with a dedicated team) Rheumatology services at both sites and recently implemented(with another dedicated colleague) a Rheumatology service at the University Hospital Hartlepool. I am also currently working with a Consultant Physiotherapist and Podiatrist in the implementation of a Community Orthopaedic Clinic.

In my other role I am an Agency Associate for the Modernisation Agency and work with the London Access Partnership in improving access to AHP services.

Although my ‘hands on work’ is no longer as frequent as I would wish, I hope I bring experience from the NHS management perspective in helping clinicians and managers develop more Rheumatology & Muscloskeletal posts and services across the UK.
