I am responsible for developing, managing and implementing the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Science's internal and external communications strategies and plans. I report to the Head of Administration and Finance and I work with researchers and the other members of the Communications Team to engage a range of stakeholders in the work of the department and maximise its impact. I am also responsible for the oversight of marketing plans for the broad range of health sciences courses the department offers.
