Currently I am working with:


Cumbria County Council Childrens Services


Member of a training consortium comprised of two early years trainers, a nutritionist and myself developing and delivering solution focused training for staff in early years settings, child minders. Currently we are developing the READY4Life training for Children Looked After. This will be delivered in the new year.


Bespoke Diabetes Training for Care Organisations


Looking after a person with diabetes - whether an elderly resident or someone with learning disabilities can be a daunting prospect. Diane Heeley-Creed, Nurse Educator and I work regularly with a wide range of organisations training their staff to understand the needs of people with diabetes and to have the confidence

to support them effectively and safely. Frequently we help organisations looking after individuals with particularly challenging needs. Currently we are working with Knowsley Five Boroughs Council.


Diabetes UK


I work as a freelance facilitator delivering 'Diabetes Awareness Training' for a variety of organisations across the north of England. Throughout 2013 I also provided dietetic input at many Roadshows in cities across the north east of England and Yorkshire. This provided a great opportunity to meet many members of the public in an informal setting and to provide advice and guidance.


Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust


For two years I was Professional Lead for Dietetics, supporting the Dietetics team in West Cumbria, this role included playing an active part in the due diligence process when Community Services joined the Partnership Trust having previously been managed by the PCT.


In order to ensure the Partnership Trusts compliance with Regulation 14 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 I was commissioned to review the trusts services and identify any gaps in provision.


My clients have included:


The Hillcroft Nursing Homes.

For 5 years I was Consultant Dietitian for this group of  6 nursing homes based near Lancaster. The emphasis was on maintaining a good quality of life for the elderly residents, many of whom suffered with dementia and had complex health and nutrition problems.

My role involved working closely with all the staff and residents to implement nutritional screening and to promote good nutrition using a 'food first ' approach


Care Quality Commission


I worked with the CQC as a practising professional alongside a CQC inspector visiting a number of care homes as part of the Dignity and Nutrition Themed Inspection Programme in 2012


LACORS Nursery Meals Project


Working with Trading Standards, Cumbria County Council, reviewing the analysis of meals from 10 Cumbrian Nurseries and comparing them with the Carolyn Walker Guidance - Eating Well for Under 5's

This involved visiting all the nurseries and discussing the outcomes. The early years work I am currently involved in (see above), is a direct result of this project.
