Academic Clinical Fellow

I am an academic clinical fellow working part time in the department and part time in primary care. 

My principal research interest is in Out of Hours primary care services

Previous projects have been diverse including exploring the attitudes of UK Medical students and Primary Care academic clinical fellows' towards primary care careers, examining whether primary care factors influence hospital admissions for heart failure patients, contributing to a systematic review of smoking cessation in adults with diabetes and examining the association between male gender and preterm delivery. I also enjoy writing opinion pieces on various issues relevant to general practice. 

I am currently working on projects characterising the work of the primary care Out-of-Hours service in Oxfordshire focusing on end of life care and antibiotic prescribing.
