NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow

  • General Practitioner
  • Deputy Director, Oxford Empathy Programme

I am a GP in Oxford and a National Institute for Health Research Doctoral Fellow. My research interests are aimed at preventing the growing burden of non-communicable diseases including diabetes and cardiovascular disease. I was awarded my current fellowship to examine the association between patient experiences within GP consultations (such as empathy and patient-centred care), and cardiovascular outcomes in type 2 diabetes. This includes multiple ongoing observational studies to quantify these associations, alongside qualitative work to understand the theory and mechanism that may underpin these associations. This programme of work is nested within the ADDITION-Cambridge trial.

Other interests relate to editorial processes amongst biomedical journals. My previous work has included studies into open access publications, the ethics of peer review and the science behind appeal procedures for rejected manuscripts. I am also on the editorial board of the British Journal of General Practice.
