I am a Senior Lecturer in Health Services Research. My research interests are:

  • Synthesis of qualitative research,
  • Self-management of long term conditions.
I have undertaken research about an intervention for carers of people with heart failure, diabetes and quality of life, management methods for pregnancy loss, decision aids for operative delivery, and outcome measures for neurology. I have worked as a cardiac intensive care nurse and sociology lecturer.
