She then worked on a cardio-thoracic ward at Bart's before moving to Leicester to train and work as a Midwife and Health Visitor. Her early research on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome led into exploration of service design for marginalised groups, such as travellers and inner city disadvantaged populations. Liz moved into academic medicine as a Senior Lecturer where she she designed innovative educational interventions relating to her early research work on poverty and disadvantage and team working. Her scholarly work led to a National Teaching Fellowship in 2007. She continues to ensure learning is underpinned with theoretical insights.
