What is your job?

I am a senior lecturer in the Institute of Health Professions at the University of Wolverhampton. I teach nurses, paramedics, physiotherapists and pharmacists how to independently manage caseloads of patients in a variety of settings, including GP surgeries, pharmacies, urgent care centres and emergency departments (EDs). I also work as a nurse practitioner in the ED at Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust, where my work principally involves caring for children.
