I am a management consultant and project manager, and I have worked in the NHS for 14 years gaining experience in a number of different areas including HR, Resourcing, Learning & Development and Medical Education during which time I have led on a number of national and local initiatives. I have a strong belief in personal development which led me to attain MCIPD and Tap Certificates as well as being a Prince 2 Practitioner.
Presently, I am working as the Head of Medical Staffing, responsible for leading on revalidation and looking after the operational and developmental needs of the medical workforce in Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust.
Four years ago I was an integral part of the team that designed and developed the Oxleas revalidation system - SARD - in conjunction with Mango Swiss Ltd, this product is now available commercially through SARD JV. I was involved in the initial concepts of revalidation long before they became a national process and utilised my intimate knowledge in this area to shape the process behind the system as well as the flexibility required for both Oxleas and other health care organisations.
