Dr Denise Tritton

I have been working in the Oxford region for the last 20 years. After qualifying in London in 1993, I started my paediatric registrar training on the Oxford scheme in 1997. Since than I have done a year as a GP trainee and have had 2 children and have held my current position as an Associate Specialist in Paediatric Haematology and Oncology at the John Radcliffe for 15 years. As part of my role I am an Educational Supervisor to Foundation years 1 and 2 and have very much enjoyed this part of my job. I was the SAS Doctor Tutor for 5 years from 2009 to 2014 and helped raise the profile of this group of doctors whilst supporting many of them through career progression and dilemmas.

As I have got older, I have identified these supporting roles as the areas of my career that I really enjoy. I have recently completed a Post Graduate award in Executive Coaching and I am now working towards my ILM level 7 qualification. I am passionate about coaching and helping people get the best out of their careers. I have certainly had a slightly unconventional career path myself and hope to be able to use my experience to help others with the challenges of the modern medical career.
