Introduction

I am an experienced health services researcher, with a particular interest in the application of mixed methods in health technology assessment. My published work includes systematic reviews, qualitative interview studies, cross sectional and longitudinal surveys and randomised controlled trials. 

Current research includes two successful collaborations with the ENT team at Newcastle Universities Hospital Trust: TUBE (http://www.nets.nihr.ac.uk/projects/hta/123532) and NATTINA (http://www.nets.nihr.ac.uk/projects/hta/1214606). I also lead a qualitative work package on a successful NIHR i4i study.

I am also a Research Advisor for the NIHR RDS NE, working with health professionals and academic staff wishing to apply for NIHR or other peer reviewed funding for health and social care research.  I advise on study design and methods, possible funding sources and link applicants to other specialist support provided by the RDS (including statistics, health economics, clinical trials).
