Personal profile


I joined the University of Northampton Midwifery Team following 20 years of clinical practice within acute maternity services. During that time I adopted a lead role for maternal and neonatal resuscitation training. I established, directed and taught on local and national courses alongside attending obstetric emergencies in practice to support the clinical team. 

I led on the adaptation and implementation of a local midified early warning system (MEOWS) which included guidance on sepsis and a nationally recognised communication tool. I established a neonatal simulation training programme and facilitated debrief sessions following both simulated and actual clinical incidents.
