I joined the Medical Care Research Unit in 1991 as project manager for an evaluation of a regional trauma system in the UK. Since then I have completed a number of large research projects in the area of pre-hospital care, ambulance service 999 call assessment systems and major trauma. I also lead rapid evidence reviews for the ScHARR rapid evidence review centre. Much of my work is directly related to policy and I led the national evaluation of NHS 111 pilot sites and continue to support implementation of policy changes in ambulance service performance measurement. Currently I am joint Principal Investigator on a 5 year NIHR Programme Grant to develop new ways of measuring quality of ambulance service care (PhOEBE) and lead the evaluation component of the NHS England Ambulance Response Programme.

Research Interests

My research interests are evaluation of new services, pre-hospital care and healthcare systems development particularly in emergency and urgent care and policy research.
