Senior Interface Physician/Associate Professor
Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust/Nuffield Department of Medicine

I am a Senior Interface Physician in Acute and Complex Medicine at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust and Associate Professor of Ambulatory Care, Nuffield Department of Medicine, Oxford University. This combines my previous clinical and research training in hospital medicine and primary care. My clinical care and research are now based in innovative acute ambulatory care units including the Emergency Multidisciplinary Unit based in Abingdon which won the Guardian Healthcare Innovation Award for Service Delivery in 2013. I have recently developed an acute ambulatory care unit in a busy tertiary academic centre with embedded research through fellows funded by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre. My acute care research interests include out of hours primary care and patient pathways that involve the interface between primary and secondary care. Service innovations related to my research are progressed through my role as Clinical Lead for Diagnostics and Pathways, Oxford Academic Health Science Network.

I am involved in a major collaborative project with Dr Parker Magin, University of Newcastle, NSW, from my Primary Care Leadership cohort, comparing health care system performance in stroke prevention in Australia and the UK. This collaboration resulted in a large $1.1 million AUSD Australian NHMRC funded cohort study of the process of care and cardiovascular risk of patients presenting to general practice in the Hunter Valley after TIA or minor stroke, as well as transient neurological symptoms in general. This project includes research collaborators from internationally renowned TIA/stroke cohort studies (Professors Alan Barber and Valery Feigin from ARCOS in New Zealand, Professor Helen Dewey from NEMESIS in Melbourne and Professor Peter Rothwell from OXVASC, UK)

I have also completed the NIHR Ashridge Leadership Programme and continue developing with my cohort.
I am a Guideline Development Group member for the NICE Acute Medical Emergencies Service Guideline and co-chair the Measurement Workstream for NHS England’s Acute Kidney Injury Programme ‘Think Kidneys’.
