Ward 21 joint manager
Area of responsibility
Together with my colleague Clare, we are responsible for ensuring Ward 21 is a safe, efficient and productive ward. We have a responsibility to ensure staff working on the ward are fully supported to provide high quality and safe care to all our women and families.
Point of contact at the hospital
I qualified as a midwife in 1995, and have worked at Airedale NHS Foundation Trust since 2009. Prior to undertaking my midwifery training I qualified as a registered nurse and worked at Leeds General Infirmary. I am grateful for all the opportunities my midwifery career has provided me with both here at Airedale NHS Foundation Trust and in my previous Trust.
I have worked in a variety of different maternity settings including Antenatal/Postnatal Ward, Labour ward, Obstetric theatre, Maternity Assessment Centre, and for 3 years I worked as Airedale NHS Foundation Trust Parent Education midwife. I am passionate about ensuring women are supported during their pregnancy journey and ensuring that all babies get the best start in life.
