MBBS BSc MRCP MRCGP
NIHR In Practice Fellow and General Practitioner
I am a General Practitioner and NIHR In Practice Fellow under the supervision of Prof Trisha Greenhalgh. I am undertaking a systematic review exploring the diagnostic accuracy of tests which identify those at risk of diabetes and the effectiveness of preventative interventions. This work has influenced local prevention pathways in a deprived area of East London. I am undertaking a qualitative review exploring how socio-cultural influences shape an individual’s perception of developing diabetes and health related behaviours.
My academic interests include the prevention of long term conditions, use of evidence in healthcare policy, social determinants of health and the assessment of complex interventions. I have recently been appointed a member of the NICE Clinical Guidelines Update Committee for Diabetes.
I am supported by the NIHR to continue my research training, undertaking an MSc in Public Health, whilst working part-time as a GP in North London.
