The standard you walk past, is the standard you accept.

Lt General David Morrison

My current role

I look after patients of all ages with acute injury or illness within the emergency department (ED) at Addenbrooke's. In addition I am the London region clinical advisor to NHSE and NHSI, covering all 28 ED within the capital. I have a further role in the investigation of safety incidents at CUH.

Previous history

I studied Medicine at University College London and Westminster Hospital in London, qualifying in 1985. I initially trained in general medicine but subsequently moved to the new specialty of A&E medicine, training in London, Norwich and Cambridge. I took up a consultant post at Addenbrooke's in 1985.

Since that time I have been the clinical director of the emergency department and a deputy medical director with responsibility for safety, quality and infection control.

Personal interests

In addition to my formal roles at work I have an interest in health space design and act as the RCEM advisor in ED Design; supporting clinical colleagues who are designing and building new EDs as well as lecturing and running courses on this topic.

When I am not at work I like spinning, scrapping and playing golf (but only if the sun is shining!). I belong to a very active book club which ensures I read something other than medical journals. I love spending time with friends and family and cannot wait until my husband and I can travel the world again.
