NIHR Clinical Trials Fellow

I graduated from Birmingham, undertook my GP training in Exeter and Bristol and have worked at the University of Bristol since 2002. I joined as an Academic GP Registrar and subsequently obtained an MRC Clinical Research Training Fellowship. In 2009 I was appointed to an NIHR Clinical Lecturership.

My research interests fall into two broad areas.  First, the core values of general practice, in particular continuity of patient care and patient-doctor relationships.  Second, the diagnosis and treatment of skin problems commonly diagnosed and managed in primary care.

My main teaching commitment is consultations skills.  I am responsible the organisation and delivery of medical undergraduate communication skills teaching in the third year at Bristol Medical School.

I continue to work three sessions per week as a GP in Portishead, North Somerset.
