I qualified in medicine from London University in 1990. She pursued her training initially in surgery and then specialised in Emergency Medicine. I spent a year as a Royal College of Surgeons of England Research Fellow and was awarded an MD whilst undertaking higher training in Emergency Medicine. I then joined Sheffield University as a Senior Clinical Lecturer in 2001 and was promoted to Reader in 2007 and Personal Chair in 2010. I divide my time between the university and as a consultant at the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust emergency department. My main research interests and passion include evaluating complex interventions in emergency and urgent care. I am particularly interested in the evaluation of new roles and alternative pathways of care.
I am most proud of staying married for nearly 25 years (to the same man) and bringing up two lovely girls so far pretty successfully and balancing this with working full time! I am keen to promote sustainable careers for women in EM and demonstrating that it is possible to have a rewarding career and wonderful family life!

Geriatric EM: Our new USP?

Geriatric EM: Our new USP?
This talk will outline the current state of play in terms of the ‘silver tsunami’ of elderly patients attending our EDs. What the evidence is for managing them effectively within the ED, and how we could manage them better. It will focus on the effective and efficient delivery of services for the elderly within the ED, the need for training and specialist skills and research to deliver improved care.
