Biography

I have been involved in the field of research and surveillance of healthcare data since completing my undergraduate degree in 2001. Following roles in the Health Protection Agency Centre for Infections (Epidemiological Scientist), where I also gained an MSc Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropicial Medicine (LSHTM), and The Royal College of Surgeons in England (Audit Co-ordinator), I joined the School of Health and Related Research at The University Of Sheffield in 2011. As a Research Associate within the Centre for Urgent and Emergency Care, my primary role is to manage research studies with a focus in urgent and emergency care, as well as being involved in teaching. Since 2011, I have project managed three studies including:-

Current Projects

Connected Health Cities (CHC): Data linkage of urgent care data commenced in 2016. Part of the Northern Powerhouse bid, CHC is aiming to provide a population data laboratory by linking data from Bradford, Leeds and Sheffield to demonstrate a large scale collaborative approach to the development of connected cities. In particular, Sheffield is collating all emergency department and in-patient data from NHS Trusts in the Yorkshire and Humber region to then link to the Yorkshire Ambulance Service and NHS111 over a 6-year period. This rich data source will allow the urgent and emergency services to be viewed as a whole system, enabling demand on the system by patients to be analysed as well as the flow of patients through the system. The study is due to finish in 2019.

Research interests

I have a keen interest in big data and understanding how routine healthcare data may be utilised and linked together to form a whole system perspective.

Teaching interests

I am the co-director for the Evidence Based Emergency Medicine and Research module, part of the MSc Emergency Medicine. I act as a supervisor and personal tutor for postgraduate students, including examining dissertation projects. I have previously been a facilitator on the Research ethics and integrity module.

Professional activities

I am the Information Governance Lead for Health Services Research in ScHARR, a member of the Athena SWAN Assessment Group and the ScHARR Ethics Committee.

Section

I am based in the Centre for URgent and Emergency care Research (CURE), part of the Health Services Research section.
