I joined NIHR CLAHRC North Thames in August 2014 from Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust where I worked on their Patient Experience Team, analysing patient feedback and working with front line staff on service improvement. Before that I worked for Westminster Local Involvement Network (LINk) as Policy, Engagement and Communications officer, promoting service-user involvement in the commissioning, design and monitoring of health and social care services.
