Manchester Metropolitan University

I am excited to be a new member of the AAPE committee and part of the team driving the developments and governance of multi-professional ACP education.

I have recently been appointed as an Associate Clinical Fellow in Advanced Clinical Practice at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), prior to this I worked as a Senior lecturer and part of the ACP MSc team. I contributed to the development and implementation of the new ACP MSc Apprenticeship programme and the ACP education portfolio at MMU. Our newest ACP cohort is very multi-professional and includes nurses, physiotherapists, podiatrist, pharmacist, radiographers, and paramedics.

I have worked in Advanced Clinical Practice since 2008 and currently work part-time as an Advanced Musculoskeletal Practitioner (Physiotherapist) at Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (MFT). I am also part of the MFT ACP steering group, developing the Trust’s ACP governance strategy.

I am passionate about multi-professional ACP education and practice and have a keen interest in the demonstration and developments of equivalence. I myself have taken a modular route meeting the four pillars of the ACP framework.

I am abreast of current regional and national ACP developments and agendas through my committee work as part of the Advanced Practice Physiotherapy Network and the North West Advanced Practice forum. This, alongside my work as an ACP educator, an ACP in clinical practice and a member of my Trust’s ACP governance strategy developments, enables me to be perfectly placed to bring an Allied Health Professions ACP aspect to the AAPE committee.
