Prior to my full time academic role at Aston University I was a senior clinical pharmacist at a leading NHS Foundation trust. I have always been passionate about hospital pharmacy and the contribution that pharmacy makes to the multidisciplinary team to improve patient care. My role as program director of the MPharm has enabled me to develop the clinical teaching and placements in the MPharm to ensure that our graduates are well placed to begin their careers in patient facing roles.
I have maintained my link with practice through my work with St Mary’s Hospice Birmingham where I provide advice, staff training and assistance with research projects.
As program director I have overall responsibility for the development and delivery of the MPharm program. My main area of teaching is clinical practice and I teach a wide range of therapeutic areas to a range of undergraduate healthcare courses. I work closely with the careers department and lead on preparing students for their pre-registration applications.
2008 – 2016: Senior Pharmacist – Teacher Practitioner, University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust and Aston University
2006 - 2008: Surgical Services Pharmacist, Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust
2005 – 2006: Basic Grade Pharmacist, Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust
2004 2005: Pre-registration Pharmacist, Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust.
I contribute to the clinical teaching in all years of the undergraduate program and the ongoing development and alignment of the hospital experience sessions and other clinical teaching.
The module in which I have the greatest input is the final year clinical module, PH4703 where along with the other members of the teacher practitioner team I develop case scenarios for teaching and assessment.
In addition to teaching at Aston University, I also support students with hospital pre-registration applications through lectures, individual appointments and written materials.
I co-ordinate all clinical undergraduate research projects in the MPharm program. I liaise with external partners such as St Mary’s Hospice Birmingham and the West Midlands Clinical Pharmacist Group to develop student projects.
I also undertake educational research projects to evidence further developments in the MPharm course, as it changes to meet the expanding skill set of the modern pharmacist.
