She is a former post-graduate student of the UWS SCPHN (Occupational Health) distance learning programme, completing in 2008 progressing forward towards completion of the Practice Teacher programme in 2010. Completing this programme allowed her to undertake another clinical role supporting best practice in my present post supporting audit and best practice and delivering guidance to the OH clinical team and attainment of the Safe, Effective, Quality Occupational Health Service (SEQOHS) standards. These are set by the Royal College of Physicians and Faculty of Occupational Medicine and are the current best practice Occupational Health benchmarks in the UK. https://www.seqohs.org/.
