Professional background

Julie is a registered nurse and midwife with a wide range of experience in clinical, research and management roles at both UCLH and other NHS Trusts. She completed my MSc in September 2009 during which she undertook modules in leadership, change management and evidence based practice as part of this.

She has been based in the acute setting since she qualified and has been responsible for the strategic and operational management of all areas within maternity services at UCLH. For the last 18 months she have lead services in Women's Health, Paediatric, Eastman Dental Hospital and the Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital in the post of Head of Nursing / Deputy Chief Nurse. In addition to this, she gained experience in a wider management role when she completed a 6 month secondment as General Manager for Maternity and Neonatal Services. These management roles have exposed her to a wealth of experiences and enabled her to develop skills in; decision making, organisation skills, management of a multi-disciplinary team, resource management, operational management of a unit, teaching and coaching of junior staff, management of a unit outside of working hours and the ability to manage time effectively whilst prioritising workload and objectives. She has retained my post as Supervisor of Midwives and remain passionate about maternity services and am committed to providing safe high quality care. She has a strong desire to change things for the better and a proven record of developing services that are sensitive and responsive to the needs of patients and their families.
