My current role is Lead for Year 3 of the revised MBChB 2016/17. This is a senior leadership role within the medical school. The role currently includes the redesign of the MBChB with ultimate responsibility for the succesful implementation of the revised year 3. This requires liaison between the University and all our NHS partners to ensure a seamless transition to the revised programme. I am also the student experience lead for Lancashire Teaching Hospitals where I work as an Honorary Consultant Paediatrician with interests in Neonatology and Allergy.
