BSc (Hons) Pre-registration Midwifery
I qualified as a midwife in 2009. During my career, I have developed a wide range of experience across all areas of midwifery care, including obstetric units, stand-alone midwife led units, and in the community. In addition, I completed my mentorship course for signing off student midwives in 2013, my newborn infant physical examination course in 2018, and my independent non-medical prescribing in 2022.
Between 2012-2021 I worked in the community, where I worked clinically and managed community services. My clinical community work included caring for women in their antenatal and postnatal journeys and being on call for the free standing midwife led unit and for home births.
During 2021-2022 I worked on a quality improvement project which involved developing our telephone triage service across the county.
I have also previously worked in an interim lead risk midwife position. In this role I was responsible for co-ordinating clinical risk and governance across maternity, as well as assisting in the implementation of care bundles such as Saving Babies’ Lives, developing guidelines, completing audits, and teaching non-obstetric staff who care for pregnant women and assisting with Coroner’s cases and HSIB investigations.
Since the end of 2022 I have been working in transformation work within maternity whilst working clinically on labour ward, in obstetric theatres, maternity triage/day assessment unit and caring for antenatal and postnatal inpatients.
I have undertaken medico-legal training on the NHSR Early Notification Scheme and I am in a position to assist with casework of this nature.
I accept instructions from both claimant and defendant solicitors and insurers. I have undergone formal training in the medico-legal process and am fully aware of my responsibilities under Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) pertaining to expert witnesses.
