Principal Lecturer

My background is clinical pharmacy. After completing a PhD in Vascular Pharmacology, I registered as a pharmacist and worked in a number of settings including: the Regional Drug and Therapeutics Centre as a drug use review pharmacist, various acute trusts as a clinical pharmacist, and as a practice-based clinical pharmacist. In 1997 I was appointed as Lead Pharmacist for the Durham & Tees Pharmacy Practice Unit before moving to County Durham & Darlington Acute Hospitals NHS Trust as Principal Clinical Pharmacist.

My clinical practice was predominantly in care of the elderly with a specialist interest in falls and syncope where I ran one of the country's only non-medical-led 'Falls & Syncope' clinics, utilising non-medical prescribing skills in order to assess, treat, manage and refer patients presenting with a history of falls, taking referrals from both secondary care colleagues and from primary care.

Teaching and supervision

I am the lead for postgraduate pharmacy programmes and continued professional development. My main areas of teaching are focused on clinical therapeutics with particular emphasis on preparing students for their role as independent prescribers. At present, pharmacists who meet a set of minimum requirements are allowed to sit a qualifying course that allows annotation of their registration details; the University offers this programme which I currently lead.

I also input in to other postgraduate pharmacy programmes, including the MSc Clinical Pharmacy.

Research interests for potential research students

Clinical outcome measures in evaluating the success or otherwise of non-medical prescribing.
