As a clinical academic I work part-time as a Nutrition Nurse with the Southampton City Home Enteral Nutrition Team and Community Nursing Team and hold an academic post at Bournemouth University. In my academic post I teach and undertake research. I am also a Visiting Fellow at the University of Southampton.
Qualifying as a Registered Nurse in London I worked in various clinical areas gaining experience in caring for people with a wide variety of conditions and nursing needs. Having studied for a master’s degree and PhD in Human Nutrition I can use my knowledge of nutrition in my clinical and academic practice. I have worked in Higher Education as a Lecturer and Associate Professor since 1999.
Why I love my job
In Solent NHS Trust I work with a great team who are focussed on providing high quality nutritional care. I love my job because I can apply my knowledge and skills to clinical practice, research and teaching and work to improve patient care.
Current projects/research studies
I am working on several current projects focusing on nutritional care, including contributing to a University of Southampton NIHR Programme Grant (Screen and TREAT for Malnutrition). I have just completed an NIHR/HEE Cat Clinical Lectureship investigating hospital admission of people receiving enteral tube feeding at home.
