Carol originally trained and worked as a GP; after a five year career break (including two years living in the States), she switched to paediatrics in 1998.
She worked as an Associate Specialist in Community Paediatrics based at Nottingham Children’s Hospital for twenty years before giving up clinical practice in 2018 to take on a management role as Deputy Medical Director at the Nottingham University Hospitals Trust. She has delegated RO responsibilities and her portfolio includes managing all doctors in difficulty.
Prior to this, she was the Trust Lead for Medical Appraisal, and she continues to appraise colleagues locally, regionally and nationally.
She was RCPCH Officer for CPD and Revalidation for three years before joining the Board of Trustees; she also undertakes college Invited Reviews (IR) and sits on the IR Programme Board.
She is a strong advocate for SAS doctors and anyone seeking a flexible career pathway.
