Staff Profile

Hannah Flynn

Health Services Researcher

Kath Maguire

At PenCLAHRC I am currently a research assistant for a collaborative project with NICE, seeking to identify ineffective clinical practices for disinvestment within the NHS. Working in close partnership with senior clinicians, GPs and commissioners, I have assisted in developing a more evidence-based approach towards disinvestment, which will be piloted across the SW Peninsula before a national roll-out. Implementing a disinvestment initiative such as this has the potential to significantly improve health outcomes by augmenting the quality, efficacy and accessibility of NHS services.

In addition to the ‘disinvestment’ project, I have contributed to other work being undertaken within PenCLAHRC, allowing me to enhance skills I acquired through my Masters in Public Health. Combining the interdisciplinary approaches of epidemiology, health economics, health technology assessment and public health policy, I have supported work around moral hazard in health insurance, cervical screening, and privatisation within international health care systems. I have also participated in CLAHRC education seminars, national NIHR workshops and presented at both national and international conferences.
