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
