    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    I am interested in NHS and social care interventions to improve health and wellbeing, particulalry in the areas of frailty and ageing and social prescrbing. I have undertaken reserach into the effects of community-based interventions to reduce frailty in older people.

    I am interested in quantitative analysis and use of statistical model to evaluate outcomes, both financial and patient, using economic analysis.


    I have worked in several areas of health: air and noise pollution management; health inequalties; NHS and Public Health commissioning and more recently in assessing value of new technologies for use in the NHS. I have previously served as Vice-Chair of the National Noise Committee at Environmental Protection UK. I became interested in the joint effects of air pollution and noise in deprived inner-city areas and the effects on quality of life. This led me to working jointly with the NHS and Public Health to  investigate interventions to improve quality of life. This ultimately led to a joint initiative to set up the first social prescribing service in Gloucestershire.

    I have served on Technology Appraisal Committee B at the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. I have an interest in the use of digital health technology in the NHS, particulalry in the areas of diabetes and telemedicine for people with multiple morbidities.
