I am a practising generalist within the UK NHS. The extensive skills set and experience I have obtained through the multitude of clinical roles I have had within Aged Care, D&A rehab', Psychiatry and Critical Care, remain invaluable. While my current clinical obligations are paramount, I am keen to gain further skills within non clinical roles in the Aged Care, disabilities and rehabilitation theatres. I am keen on gaining an understanding of corporate Healthcare from the 'medical affairs' point of view; whilst from an ongoing clinical perspective, critical care and Aged care are of particular interest to me given the ever changing funding climate of the UK NHS and the increasing demands put on it from these two specialties.
