About Sean Morton

Sean Morton is a Senior Lecturer in Faculty of Health and Social Sciences. He qualified as Registered Nurse in 1993 from St. Bartholomews Hospital in London. His first staff nurse post was in acute neurosurgery at the Royal London Hospitalwhere he developed an interest in head injury and assessment. During this time he started to study for his Bahcleors degree with a focus on the Use and Abuse of the Glasgow Coma Scale for his dissertation. He moved in 1995 to Accident and Emergency/Trauma nursing and worked alongside HEMS treating trauma patients. In 1999, he moved to Phoenix, Arizona and worked as a staff, then charge nurse in a Level One trauma centre, during this time he studied for and completed his MA in Organisational Management, experiences in Quality Management, Clinical Education and finally as Assistant Professor in nursing led him to education. In 2007 he returned to the UK and after a brief management post in the NHS, looking at Stategic Workforce planning, secured a lecturer position at University of Nottingham and now at the Unviersity of Lincoln. He continues to have an interest in trauma and head injury management, as well as management interests.
