Dr Fleur Kitsell
Global Health Partnerships Directorate, Health Education England
I work as the Senior Lead for Global Placements and Volunteering in the Global Health Partnerships Directorate of Health Education England; with a focus on developing opportunities for NHS staff to gain global learning opportunities. We are committed that all schemes have clear mutual benefits and that our programmes are co-developed with overseas partners. It is satisfying to contribute to the growing evidence base in this field and to use that evidence to improve what we offer. I am a physiotherapist and have worked in patient care and the academic sector and continue to enjoy using education and development principles as a foundation for our global learning opportunities.
