Ann Watson

Executive Assistant to Head of Department and Director of the Botnar Institute for Musculoskeletal Sciences

I am responsible for the effective day to day management and smooth running of the busy academic office's for the Head of Department/Botnar Director and also the Nuffield Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery.  I provide high level, detailed administrative support for their varied and extensive professional work and travel. I liaise closely with the Department’s senior management team and organise and service the regular internal Departmental meetings.  In addition, I provide support to their research projects, research teams and clinical fellows.  

I joined NDORMS in 2014 and have over 10 years’ experience working within Higher Education and the NHS, including the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, part of the Natural Environment Research Council and more recently, the National Blood Service at the John Radcliffe Hospital. 

I hold a BSc honours degree in Geography from the University of Reading and a Masters in Spatial Planning & Historic Conservation from Oxford Brookes.  In my free time I enjoy exploring the countryside with my husband & Basset Hound, horse riding, gardening, cooking, reading and more recently paddle boarding.
