Staff Development Officer
University of Dundee Medical School / NHS TaysideScotland
I have worked in various roles within the NHS for the past 8 years. I enjoy working with staff and service users, to make the experiences of healthcare and healthcare education the best it can be.
For the past 6 years, I've worked in the world of medical education, taking on the role of conduit between education organisers (medical schools and deaneries) and education providers (healthboards). I am passionate about ensuring our clinical environments are not forgotten about in their important roles as learning environments, and my primary role is supporting NHS staff in these environments to be innovative, supportive and confident educators.
I believe the key to building a quality experience for patients/staff/educators/learners, is in the art of building effective relationships.
