I'm an XR Technology & Digital Innovation Specialist


An experienced Innovator, R+D Advisor and national Consultant for XR in health and social care

 I have created, implemented and lead on numerous XR based projects, including the nationally recognised HEE sponsored VR Lab. I am the co-lead of the parliamentary award nominated Digital Futures program at TSDFT in the NHS.
I advise and consult as an SME on a number of significant XR research and adoption programmes across healthcare as well as support digital strategy and transformation.


Since 2015, at the forefront of Immersive Technology in Health.

I have been privileged in helping pioneer the use of XR with patient and staff groups in the NHS and have seen (as well as documented in national papers and best practice guidance) the influence and change these technologies can make, when used right.
