Profile

My main responsibility is for the management of a multi-centre quality improvement and implementation study, funded by NHS England, to transform the delivery of Cystic Fibrosis (CF) care in the UK. 

The CFHealthHub Data Observatory brings together NHS CF centres into an 'improvement collaborative', to plan, test and deliver changes that allow adherence data to become part of routine clinical encounters. In addition, the study hosts the first cohort Multiple Randomised Controlled Trial (or 'Trials within Cohorts') platform, with a focus on behaviour change interventions. Within the project we have also designed a mixed-methods process evaluation, to understand barriers and facilitators to behaviour change in clinical settings. 

Prior to joining CTRU, I was a Research Assistant for Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. During this time I conducted National Institute of Health Research Portfolio projects across a range of adult mental health conditions. I am particularly interested in the application of evidence-based therapy in clinical practice. I hold an MSc in Psychological Research Methods and a BSc in Psychology from the University of Sheffield.
