Biography

I am currently Programme Manager for the Technology Assessment Reviews (TARs) Programme, which is commissioned by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the National Institute for Health Research & Health Technology Assessment (NIHR HTA)

ScHARR-TAG undertakes reviews of the clinical and cost effectiveness of health care interventions on behalf of a range of policy makers, including the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

Between 1 August 2018 and 31 May 2019 I was seconded to work as a Research Associate on the NIHR funded study "The design, development and commissioning of patient focused vascular services."  This study seeks to identify which non health attributes of service provision are important to patients and to establish the relative value society places on these attributes in relation to health outcomes.

I joined ScHARR in 1997 as Publications Officer to the Working Group on Acute Purchasing (WGAP). WGAP worked with NHS Purchasers in the Trent Region to advise on the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of health service interventions.  Following the establishment of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), and the cessation of the Working Group on Acute Purchasing in 2000, I became a part of the ScHARR Rapid Reviews Group (SRRG), which was later renamed ScHARR Technology Assessment Group (ScHARR-TAG).

Before moving to the University of Sheffield I was employed by Sheffield City Council and Sheffield Health Authority. I began working at the University in 1993, as PA to the Deputy Secretary.

I have a BA(Hons) degree in Business Studies, from Sheffield Hallam University, and a Master of Public Health (Health Services Research) from the University of Sheffield.

I am also the Health & Safety Officer for HEDS.
