We are a team of clinicians and researchers with a shared interest in looking after our patients, ourselves and each other. Below is a short biography on each team member:
Adrian Plunkett: I am a consultant Paediatric Intensivist at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. My main interests are palliative care, epidemiology, sepsis, metacognition and excellence reporting. I am a rational optimist, and I am addicted to reading. Tweet me @adrianplunkett or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Nicki Kelly: I am a specialty registrar in Paediatric Intensive Care at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. I am particularly interested in hearing from other doctors in training, junior healthcare professionals and students about how we can share excellence and fresh ideas to build a more positive NHS for the future.

Simon Blake: I’m a social science researcher, learner and teacher from Warwick Business School. Currently, whilst I develop my doctoral project at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, I am embedded within CLAHRC West Midlands. Connecting with co-creators of impactful, inclusive and ‘different’ healthcare innovation research has become a passion. Tweet @simonb143 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Gabriella Morley: I am a FY1 doctor in the West Midlands. My interests in medicine are still broad, but I particularly enjoy paediatrics and the management of acute illness. Trying to understand physics, space travel and cross-country running are my passions. And, I firmly believe in LfE: by recognising excellence, we are more likely to replicate it.
