Realistic Medicine Clinical Lead / Deputy Director of Nursing & Care
I am registered nurse with postgraduate qualifications in Healthcare Management. I spent much of my clinical career in Operating Theatres, managing care in a variety of settings both in the NHS and private healthcare sectors. In the last 15 years I have been in roles such as Operational Manager for the West of Scotland Regional Burns & Plastic Surgery service , managing demand, capacity and resources. I left that role for a senior professional nursing role in NHS Highland at Raigmore Hospital where I led the Quality and Patient Safety Directorate. I returned to Glasgow in 2014 as the Deputy Director of Nursing & Care for the National Board NHS 24 which provides both scheduled and urgent care services for the people of Scotland.
I have significant experience in service redesign, innovation and the creation of new roles to support the delivery of safe, effective, person centred care delivered by the right person, in the right place and at the right time.View film Back
