I then undertook the midwifery short course at the European Institute for Health and Medical Sciences (EIHMS) at the University of Surrey in 1992-3. I have worked in a variety of roles at RSCH as a midwife and completed my MSc. in Advanced Midwifery Practice in 1996.

Following completion of this I have worked as a Lecturer-Practitioner at King's College London.
