Profile picture of Natalie Jones

I have a BSc in Occupational Therapy from the University of Derby and an MSc in Clinical Research from the University of Sheffield. I am currently on a National Institute for Health Research/Health Education England, Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Sheffield, hosted by Sheffield Teaching Hospitals FT. My study aims to explore the feasibility of improving patient outcomes by providing intensive interventions for eating and drinking in the format of a breakfast group intervention.

This will be delivered by a range of health professionals on two acute stroke units. This will be supported by a tool kit which will facilitate skill sharing and collaborative working to assess, care plan and measure outcomes. This study will be co-produced and co-designed by stakeholder and advisory groups comprising of experts in the field, clinicians, patients and carers.

My research is collaboration between Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust, the University of Sheffield and Nottingham University. I have 25 years’ experience in health and care services and guest lecturing at Sheffield Hallam University. In collaboration with CLAHRC YH (Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care Yorkshire Humber) I co- designed a tool to measure the impact of delivering clinical research in the NHS

I was awarded the UK Research Occupational Therapy Foundation ‘Early Researcher Award’ for her research in 2015 and has been awarded a prize from the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System for her work on improving care for stroke patients and in 2018 was a finalist for The NIHR/HEE Advancing Health Care Awards in 2018 for research capacity building activities.
