Welcome to my website

Setting up my own website and blog has been on my ever-growing to do list for several months! As well as being a platform for me to share my ideas and experiences, I hope what I share will inspire you to get involved in shaping the future healthcare landscape.

Since September 2015, my life just seems to have become more hectic, particularly because I had come to the final year of my undergraduate degree. It has been a rollercoaster of a ride, but I am pleased to say that I will be graduating from The University of Manchester on Tuesday 12th July 2016, with a 1st class BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Sciences with Industrial/Professional Experience. Cheers to that!
