I am an Oxfordshire GP and have been involved in clinical academic primary care for over 10 years. I am currently the Deputy Director of the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine.
I am a principal investigator with interests that focuses broadly on:
- Assesment of novel technologies to improve patient-centred chronic disease management
- Increasing the evidence base to support the redesign of future primary care (including the role for social prescribing in the community)
- Improving the understanding and use of evidence, particularly systematic reviews, in knowledge translation
I work collaboratively with other researchers at a local, national and international level.
I am a member of the Catalogue of Bias team.
My work was recognised nationally by the 2016 RCGP/SAPC Yvonne Carter Award for outstanding new researcher.
In 2019, the Royal College of General Practitioners awarded me Fellowship status of the college.
