Laura Armitage


Clinical Researcher in Digital Health

  • General Practitioner

My research interests are in digital health innovations, in particular those which seek to increase patient autonomy, understanding and engagement with their health and treatment(s).

After completing General Practice Specialty Training in Oxford in 2016, I was awarded an NIHRC CLAHRC GP Fellowship in Cambridge in 2017. During this time I worked in the Health Behaviours Team at Cambridge University's Department of Public Health and Primary Care, investigating the use of mobile device applications to support medication adherence.

I returned to Oxford in 2018 to take up post as Clinical Researcher in Digital Health, working with Professor Andrew Farmer. I am currently working on two hospital-to-home cohort studies which aim to use digital health innovations to better understand and improve two important areas of clinical care. These are collaborative projects with clinical researchers in secondary care and Oxford University's Department of Biomedical Engineering.

I also work clinically as a GP in Oxfordshire.
