Christine A'Court


Clinical Researcher & GP

I am a GP in West Oxfordshire with an extended role in Cardiology, providing community-based cardiology clinics as part of Oxford University Hospital’s Integrated Cardiology Service. 

My current research focus is the impact of patient self-monitoring of cardiovascular indicators using a range of devices, from heavily marketed wearables to more traditional equipment like oximeters and blood pressure monitors, both pre and post onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, in face to face and remote consultations. 

This interest flows from previous qualitative research on the utility of telehealth and video consulting in patients with heart failure; part of a multi-site programme called Studies in Co-assisted Living Solutions (SCALS); examining how the complex processes of diagnosis, clinical decision-making and a therapeutic interaction can happen 'remotely' through use of technology.
