I work within the Kent, Surrey and Sussex NIHR Applied Research Collaboration and my role is focused on the beneficial changes arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

I moved into NHS management in both providers and commissioners with the final ten years in executive director roles in the NHS in Kent, ending with eight months as NHS tactical commander for Kent during the Covid-19 pandemic.
