Julian Treadwell


NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow and General Practitioner

I am an NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow under the supervision of Prof. Trisha Greenhalgh and Prof. Kamal Mahtani.

My DPhil project will use qualitative and co-design methods to develop novel ways to communicate evidence on the benefits and harms of treatments for long term conditions to support GPs'  decision making in clinical practice.

I have interests are in overdiagnosis and over-treatment, particularly with regard to multi-morbidity and polypharmacy, and improvements to be made via the useful evolution of clinical guidelines.

I have additional  roles as a co-moderator of the NICE GP Reference Panel and as an associate editor of the Drugs and Therapeutics Bulletin. I co-founded and was Vice-Chair of the RCGP standing group on Overdiagnosis from 2014-18.

My clinical work is based in Oxford.
