Lisa qualified as a general nurse in 1988 and as a midwife in 1991.
She has enjoyed a varied career in clinical practice and operational management in a number of trusts.
Prior to joining HSIB she held the position of Head of Nursing and Director of Midwifery at North Bristol NHS Trust. Lisa is experienced in research, quality improvement, risk and safety, clinical investigation reports, and clinical training.
Lisa is committed to championing the voice of the family within investigations. She holds a first degree in Contemporary Midwifery and has a master’s degree in Organisational Development and Leadership.
She enjoys working for HSIB as it offers the opportunity to work within a team who are all focussed on the improvement of safety for families and NHS staff. It has been an opportunity to bring together 30 plus years of clinical and operational management experience, within a like minded team, to support dissemination of safety learning to the wider NHS system.
