Hayley Allan is a professional educator and lecturer who has worked in education for over 30 years and in healthcare education for over 20 years.

Sarah Hall is an Emergency Medicine Consultant with an interest in medical education, patient safety and human factors.

Both curators believe passionately that human stories not only lead to better healthcare and education, but provide resilience, fulfilment and professional support and satisfaction.

Sarah and Hayley have both written blogs for some years, which can be accessed in the Further Reading section. A history of sharing stories from their working life, and an inspiring group of students and trainees led them to want to provide a platform for the sharing of inspiration, perspiration and transformation. Hayley and Sarah also write a number of stories in this collection, as well as acting as curators.
