NIHR Clinical Doctoral Research Fellow (Paramedic)
Since qualifying as a paramedic I have enjoyed a diverse range of clinical settings. This includes frontline ambulance work, minor injury units, medical repatriation and specialist cardiac arrest response cars. I joined the University of Sheffield in 2017 and have been mainly investigating ambulance conveyances to the Emergency Department. this has been part of the CLAHRC Y+H Avoiding Attendance and Admission in Long Term Conditions theme. I am the co-module director of Prehospital Emergency Care alongside Dr. Justin Squires. This is part of the MSc Advanced Emergency Care provided by ScHARR. I am currently undertaking an NIHR/HEE Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship into risk prediction modelling of ambulance service conveyances to the Emergency Department.
