Simon has been working at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust since 1991 and has worked in numerous fields including Rheumatology, Orthopaedics, Respiratory Medicine and General and Neuro Intensive Care. Since 2012, he is been working in Haemostasis and Thrombosis Research at Oxford Haemophilia and Thrombosis centre.
In 2013 he completed a Master’s Degree in Medical Ethics and Law and is currently developing a project on the psychosocial implications of haemophilia care in an age of disruptive and curative therapies to take forward as a research topic for a PhD.
Since 2014, he has been a member of the Haemophilia Nurse Association (HNA) in the UK as the association’s Vice Chair. He is also a nurse representative on the United Kingdom Haemophilia Centres Doctors’ Organisation’s (UKHCDO) Data access group, reviewing applications for data from the UK’s National Haemophilia Database.
Simon is interested in Nurse Education and hopes to be able to marry some of the preliminary research he’s been doing with the HNA with the educational aims of EAHAD and its nurses committee.
