R.N. and MA Education
Ruth undertook her nurse training in Manchester and worked in the hospital and community settings before moving to Leicestershire in the early 1990s. She worked at Groby Road Hospital and then Leicester Hospitals, where her interest in education developed. Whilst working on the wards she undertook various courses to achieve a teaching qualification and a degree in Health Studies. Ruth's career started to focus on Practice Education and progressed into workforce development and planning. She has always been committed to Life Long Learning and this formed the theme for her MA in Education. Ruth has taken up opportunities to broaden her understanding of education and achieved travel scholarships to visit Poland and Canada, as well as being part of a team visiting India to deliver leadership training to nurses.
Ruth is delighted to join the team and using her knowledge and experience to support the entire workforce in delivering an excellent service to and for the people of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
Ruth and her family enjoy organising events and competing with their two horses at carriage driving competitions.
