About Sarah

  • I live with my husband Graham and two young children Zachary and Jasmine in a house that we built.
  • I’m energetic and outgoing and enjoy mountain biking, kite surfing, kickboxing, skiing and scuba diving.
  • I’m passionate about improving the care of patients with COPD at all stages of the disease.  I have a particular interest in improving the management of patients with severe lung disease and helping them to gain excellent palliative care by working with the many healthcare professionals in this field.  I have a special interest in integrated community respiratory working, and work as part of a multi-disciplinary team providing a community respiratory service to the residents of Knowsley.  Our team won the Integrated Care HSJ award for our Respiratory service in 2013.
