Diet, Obesity and Type 2 diabetes

My primary research interests are focussed on developing and evaluating dietary and health behaviour change interventions for patients with type 2 diabetes in primary care.  

I recently led the DIAMOND study which demonstrated that it is feasible for practice nurses to deliver and support a low-calorie, low-carbohydrate dietary and behavioural intervention for patients with type 2 diabetes, with promising short-term clinical improvements.

I am a practising GP, and a Clinical Lecturer involved in medical student teaching at Somerville College.
