Clinical Lead for Asthma and Allergy, Education for Health

Viv has 25 years’ experience of clinical practice in the NHS in both primary and secondary care and joined Education for Health in 2013 as the Clinical Lead for Asthma and Allergy.

She believes that excellence in education for healthcare professionals is the key to improving health outcomes for people with asthma and allergy. Identifying people with poor disease control and helping them to improve their disease management through shared decision making and action planning is essential if we are to improve quality of life for people with asthma and allergy and prevent avoidable deaths.

In addition to her educational role, Viv also works part time in primary care reviewing and managing patients with respiratory disease.

She has a number of additional professional interests including a role on the editorial board for a nursing journal, writing for publication and is a member of the Asthma UK Council for Health Professionals.

Viv is also on the committee for the National Paediatric Respiratory and Allergy Nurses Group, where she leads on primary care issues, and was a panellist on the National Review of Asthma Deaths.
