Dr David Lehane

NIHR Clinical Lecturer

I am a Clinical Lecturer in primary care medicine and a working GP at Page Hall Medical Centre in Sheffield. I am funded by the NIHR to develop my research and teaching skills with a focus on health inequalities. My passion to work towards health equity for communities and support professionals working with vulnerable groups was inspired through witnessing the contrasts in the social determinants of health for patients throughout my career.

Prior to gaining my medical degree at The University of Sheffield in 2004 I worked as Post Doctoral researcher at the Universite Claude Bernard Faculte de Medecine in Lyon, France. Before this I completed a BSc in Zoology and then PhD at the University of Sheffield.

Research Interests

Pragmatic health services research focusing upon:

  • Health Inequalities
  • Migrant health
  • The impact of environment on the Epigenome and how this impacts upon life chances.
