Dr Green entered the specialist training in Haematology at Kings College Hospital, London in 2004. She went on to undertake research in Haemostasis and Thrombosis at University College London, leading to the degree of MD(Res). In 2011 she was appointed a Consultant in Haemostasis and Transfusion Medicine, with joint appointments at NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) and Barts Health Trust. In 2018 she was appointed a Senior Clinical Lecturer in Transfusion Research and Innovation at Queen Mary University of London and was promoted to Reader in 2022. In 2020 she became a Principal Investigator at NHSBT. Dr Green’s clinical duties are based at NHSBT and Barts Health Trust where she provides leadership on the appropriate use of blood components. In 2021 she was appointed Clinical Lead for Blood Transfusion for the South East London Pathology Partnership, covering seven transfusion laboratories. 


Research Interests:

Dr Green’s research remit focuses on improving the treatment of acquired bleeding disorders (e.g. trauma, obstetrics, cardiac etc) and bridging laboratory research and clinical work by developing new blood component that can improve the outcome of bleeding patients. She has led numerous randomised control trials, nationals epidemiological studies and systematic reviews in the field of acquired bleeding disorders.
