Staff Profile

Kath Wilkinson

Associate Research Fellow

Kath Maguire

I joined PenCLAHRC as an Associate Research Fellow in September 2016 to work across Child Health projects. One of these projects is the Paediatric Acute Care Project, which aims to evaluate system-level interventions to improve paediatric care and reduce admissions. I have a background in Psychology and experience of managing and delivering research and evaluation projects across the education, health and social care sectors, with a focus on service improvement and research-informed practice. Prior to this post I worked at the University on a project seeking to embed evidence-based practice in policing.
