About me

I lost my husband Paul due to a mix up over different types of formulations of the drug Amphotericin. This led me to become a campaigner for patient safety. I have worked with AvMA to improve the system for implementing and regulating Patient Safety Alerts – one of which was issued concerning Amphotericin and high-risk drugs.

I have given talks at a number of large conferences including the Patient Safety Congress, and helped train health professionals. I was selected to be a patient representative on the Berwick Report following the investigation of the South Staffordshire Inquiry and was invited to the Houses Of Parliament to review all high-risk drugs used in trusts nationally.

What I offer

  • Presentations on patient safety
  • Raising awareness for correct procedures for high risk drugs
  • Educating junior doctors regarding patient safety and errors
  • My story about Paul
