About

Overview

Anne is a Senior Lecturer in Critical Care specialising in critical care nursing, in particular neurosciences and intensive care nursing. She joined City University in 2003 having previously worked in a variety of specialist neuroscience and ITU clinical settings.

Anne undertook her training at St Bartholomew's School of Nursing and Midwifery, and since qualifying has worked in a number of specialist, tertiary referral settings in neurosciences and intensive care such as the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and Atkinson Morley's Hospital. This has allowed her to develop her clinical interests of neuroscience and neurotrauma critical care, as well as invasive ventilation management, sepsis (and associated care) and the psychological impact of critical illness. Her other areas of interest are largely focussed on professional/ practice development and education, as well as ethical perspectives of critical care.
