Current JobConsultant in Diabetes & Endocrinology
Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust
My Work: Live in a mystical world of hormones..and try to help those who struggle with them! :-)
I am a Endocrine Consultant-working in the NHS- based in Portsmouth and my areas of expertise are the pituitary gland- as well as type 1 diabetes. I tend to spend a lot of time working with teenagers and adolescents who have type 1 diabetes- and my role is mostly supporting all to live with this!
One of main passions is in teaching- and i really enjoy spending time teaching medical students and hopefully trying to get the next generation ready for all challenges ahead
I also work with some amazing friends who all like to have a laugh at work- and we all share a dream that we will continue to deliver the best possible care for all local patients
Finally, i love spending time with my family and my lovely dog..called Marvel! You may have guessed but I love super heroes and their world..so no surprise my dog has that name!
My Typical Day: Clinic, teaching medical students,telephone calls, emails with patients, using Skype for patients, meetings…all in all..pretty packed!
What I'd do with the prize money: Use it to sponsor students to come and spend some time with us and learn more about the world of hormones!
I have a few ideas…but in short, I am all about expanding our magical but perhaps hidden world of hormones and diabetes to the wider world…and what better place to start early.
So if I win the award, I would like to use that to help sponsor students to come and spend time with us, see what research we do, try and have a glimpse of our world…and most importantly, that we scientists can also be pretty cool- and the world of medicine is actually quite fun!
