Associate Director of Nursing - Head of Safeguarding
I have been privileged to work in the health service for over 35 years across a diverse range of settings, ranging from mental health, community, commissioning, to acute care. This has enabled me to have a wider perspective about the health economy from an operational to a strategic level. However, I have always ensured that the individual / patient, has always been the focus of my practice.
For the last ten years of my career I have worked as a safeguarding specialist. My current portfolio includes safeguarding across all ages, dementia, mental health, learning disabilities and equality and diversity. Therefore, I am passionate about supporting patients and their families and ensuring that the workforce understand and “see” the potential risks of abuse or neglect to all members of the families we assess and treat.
