I am currently Professor of Health Services Research in the College of Medicine at Swansea University. I lead the Patient and Population Health theme within the College and am Interim Director of the Swansea Trials Unit(STU).
I graduated in 1981 from the University of Surrey with a Bsc (Hons) Economics, Sociology, Statistics and completed my PhD in Health Services Research ‘Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in seriously injured accident victims’ at the University of Sheffield in 2000.
My main research interests and expertise lie in the fields of Emergency Pre-hospital and Unscheduled Care, Clinical Audit and Effectiveness, and research support. In these areas, the focus of my work is to plan, design and carry out evaluations of health technologies and new models of service delivery which often involve changing roles and working across boundaries between service providers. My work is strongly patient-focused and collaborative, and uses mixed methods to achieve study aims.
