I joined Edge Hill University in May 2019 as Programme Lead of the MCh Master of Surgery. Previously I was Senior Lecturer in Biomedical Ethics at the University of Birmingham, where I was responsible for the ethics and law curriculum across the MBChB. I was also the Programme Lead for the MSc and BMedSc in Health Care Ethics and Law. I was awarded a National Teaching Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in 2015 in recognition of educational enhancement in bioethics across undergraduate and postgraduate medical education. I am a member of the International Forum of Teachers of Bioethics at UNESCO and a member of the UK Council of Teachers of Professionalism in the UK.
My career has focused on the relationship between health care education, ethics and professionalism. I have expertise in enhanced equality and diversity initiatives, conscientious objection and personal beliefs in medical practice. I work closely with the UNESCO Chair in Bioethics, and I am delighted to establish and lead the Edge Hill Unit of the UNESCO Chair in Bioethics, which will provide a platform for a range of initiatives in bioethics across the Faculty and wider University. Since joining the University I have been excited to meet such a wide range of colleagues across Faculties who have diverse but complimentary expertise in subject areas which inform and shape bioethical discussions. I look forward to working across the themes within the Unit, developing a new range of resources and research projects, which will improve patient care and professional practice.
