Ph.D, B.Sc (Hons)
Senior Scientific Manager, NIHR School for Primary Care Research
I have worked in higher education management since 1997. I joined the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) School for Primary Care Research (SPCR) as Senior Scientific Manager in 2010. I am responsible for the School's strategic planning and management ensuring that the programme delivery is as defined in the School's business plan. I work closely with colleagues in each of the School's nine academic partners; Bristol, Cambridge, Keele, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Oxford, Southampton and University College London overseeing the School's portfolio of research projects and cohorts of trainees. I represent the SPCR in various cross NIHR fora and other Primary Care organisations sharing good practice on issues such as programme management, governance, training, patient and public involvement, communications and finance.
