BSc, MSc


I am a health services researcher with an interest in the role primary care plays in addressing health inequalities through action on social determinants of health. I currently working on a programme of projects around social prescribing. I lead an NIHR SPCR funded project looking at the way social prescribing link workers work in socioeconomically disadvantaged settings. I am also the Rosemary Stewart Scholar at Green Templeton College, conducting doctoral research on the ways in which social prescribing is being implemented in areas with high levels of socioeconomic disadvantage.

In the past, I have worked on a range of projects relating to the delivery of primary care services. I led a realist review as part of the NIHR HTA funded Tailor Medication Synthesis project. The project aimed to explore the optimisation of a whole-person-centred approach to stopping medicines in older people with multimorbidity and polypharmacy. I have also worked on projects relating to digital health in primary care. These include exploring the potential of online patient feedback to drive health service improvements; the development of a digital platform to support older carers and a systematic review of two-way digital communication for the management of diabetes in children and adolescents. I have also been involved in a number of projects on Patient and Public Involvement. 

I am also the programme coordinator of the Undergraduate Medical School Evidence-Based Medicine Course.
