Biography

Profile

Welcome to the department website. As well as being Professor and Head of the Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, I am also the National Director of the NIHR School for Primary Care Research (2009-) and was co-Director of the Quality and Outcomes (QOF) Review Panel from 2005-09. I sit on many national and international scientific and research funding boards, including the Council of the British Heart Foundation (until 2012), the Board of the British Primary Care Cardiovascular Society, and am President of the European Primary Care Cardiovascular Society (EPCCS).

My research interests focus on cardiovascular epidemiology and clinical trials, especially relating to vascular and stroke risk, and heart failure. Overall my publications include 28 book chapters, 13 edited books and over 350 original papers in peer reviewed journals such as the Lancet, Annals of Internal Medicine, BMJ, Atherosclerosis, EHJ and Stroke. My research has impacted on international health policies and clinical guidelines. Within the NHS, I have consulted on National Service Frameworks for CHD, atrial fibrillation, and heart failure and several National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) reviews.  I have provided clinical care in inner-city general practice for over 30 years.
