My clinical and research interests are in primary care paediatrics, specifically common childhood infection, vaccine preventable infection, the early diagnosis of serious disease and clinical trials in children. I lead a five year NIHR programme grant to study the early use of antibiotics in ‘at risk’ children with influenza. Within this grant there are a number of potential nested projects involving clinical trial, qualitative, microbiological, health economic and clinical prediction rules research.
