I am an Academic General Practitioner, with a commitment to research on patient centred care that is relevant for decision making in clinical practice and health policy. I lead the Health Services & Policy Research Group at the University of Exeter Medical School. I also lead on the patient-centred care theme of the Exeter Collaboration for Academic Primary Care (APEx).
My current research interests focus on the use of patient reports on their own health for decision making in clinical practice and health policy, and the improvement of processes of care (quality and safety), with a particular interest in patients with multiple conditions.
I am Lead for Advanced Health Services Methods in the MSc on Applied Health services Research at the University of Exeter.
Since completing my training as a General Practitioner I have maintained active clinical practice in different countries and in a variety of environments, including developing countries for very brief periods.
I am President Elect of the International Society for Quality of Life Research and Associate Editor of the European Journal of General Practice.
