Mairead Murphy is a Research Fellow at the University of Bristol who specialises in mixed-methods evaluations in primary care, with a focus on remote consulting and remote monitoring of patients. She has an interest in development of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) and on how to use PROMs feedback from patients to clinicians to improve communications in the consultation. Prior to her research career she worked as a management consultant, carrying out strategic planning, business case development and monitoring and evaluation projects in the health sector in the UK and Africa. She still carries out evaluations as an independent consultant, most recently leading the service evaluation of the primary care led remote pulse oximetry service for COVID-positive patients in Somerset. Her PhD was on development of a generic PROM for primary care and she is currently leading an NIHR-funded study on using this PROM to share information between patients and GPs (the COAC Study). She has also recently led the RAPCI Study, which investigated the rapid move to remote consultations in UK primary care at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
