Linsey is the Undergraduate Course Director for the Nutrition and Dietetic group and is responsible for the BSc Hons Dietetics, BSc Hons Nutrition, Certificate Nutritional Health and Certificate HE Nutritional Health.

Linsey’s clinical expertise lies in all aspects of Nutrition support and includes the specialist areas of Gastroenterology, Liver Disease, Surgery and Intensive Treatment/Care units.

Linsey is also passionate about the use of simulated learning as part of a programme of study, understanding more about the role of personal tutoring, the transition of students into higher education and excellent assessment and feedback within the HEI setting. She has developed areas of pedagogic research looking into simulated practice and impact on student experience as well as developing the tutor support and learning role.
