Profile

I have had close links with the School of Health and Related Research in Sheffield since moving to Sheffield as a Consultant Vascular Surgeon in 1994. I was appointed to an Honorary Chair at the School of Health and Related Research in 2003 and to a Chair of Professor of Vascular Surgery in 2004. I stopped my clinical practice in 2011 but have continued with a number of research projects related to technology appraisal and decision science.

I recently completed an extensive research programme looking at The Design, Development, Commissioning and Evaluation of Patient Focused Vascular Services, funded by a six-year NIHR Programme Grant for Applied Research.

Recent and ongoing projects

  • Studies of the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of treatments for peripheral arterial disease.
  • Studies of the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of new treatments for varicose veins.
  • Studies relating to clinical decision making in areas of vascular disease including aortic aneurysm and carotid disease.
  • Studies of the drivers to the configuration of sub-specialist vascular services.
  • Studies of patient and societal preferences for various aspects of service provision and delivery.
  • The development of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) for vascular disease.
  • Studies of disparities in access treatment and outcomes of vascular services based upon socioeconomic factors and ethnicity.
Research interests

My research interests include clinical decision science, economic and decision analytic modelling, technology appraisal, the organisation and delivery of sub-specialist services and the ethics of evidence-based healthcare policy. Due to my previous clinical experience many of these projects relate to areas of vascular disease, although I also have wider interests relating to a range of technologies and issues around outcome assessment, decision science and the ethics of policy decisions in healthcare.
