I graduated from the Leeds School of Physiotherapy with a Graduate Diploma in Physiotherapy in 1987. After working in a variety of clinical posts I took up a specialist role in palliative care at a Hospice in North Liverpool from 1996-2015.Whilst in this role, in 2009 I took an 18-month part time secondment as Allied Health Professional Project Lead for the Merseyside & Cheshire Cancer Network. In 2011 I completed a Masters of Research in Health Sciences from the University of Liverpool. I spent a year in Oxford as a project manager for a feasibility trial before joining the Cicely Saunders Institute in June 2016 as a National Institute of Health Research Clinical Doctoral Research Fellow. My project will develop and test a short term integrated rehabilitation service for people newly diagnosed with lung cancer or mesothelioma.
