I'm a QI coach, researcher and knowledge sharing enthusiast! I'm passionate about helping the NHS use evidence for quality improvement better. In 2019 our work in this space won the Collaboration Award at the Institute of Continuous Improvement in Public Services, and we came 2nd in the HSJ Support Service of the Year category.

During my 9 years in the NHS I have lead and delivered a wide variety of improvement projects working with multiple specialties and operational teams including paediatrics, maternity, respiratory, ophthalmology, day surgery, operating theatres, private patients and outpatients.

I'm also a researcher at the University of Bristol, exploring the role of management consultants in the NHS and how we can use them better.

Before joining the NHS I spent 13 years in the private sector as a Senior Manager at RBS and as a Management Consultant for Accenture and IBM Business Consulting Services. I have an MBA from London Business School and an MA in Law from Oxford. I have 3 children and live in Somerset.
