I am Deputy Director of the PenCLAHRC, and in addition to involvement in a range of projects being carried out within PenCLAHRC, I have Executive responsibility for the PenCLAHRC Evidence Synthesis Team and the Peninsula Collaboration for Operational Research and Development (PenCHORD).
Alongside my work at the University of Exeter, I am Chair of the Editorial Board for Health Technology Assessment (a monograph series within the NIHR Journals Library) and Vice Chair of one of NICE’s Technology Appraisals Committees. I graduated in Medicine from University of Bristol in 1987, then trained and worked as a general practitioner in Australia and Hampshire before specialising in public health medicine in Southampton, where I subsequently became Deputy Director, NETSCC, Health Technology Assessment (HTA) .
In 1999 I began work as a Consultant in Public Health Medicine at North and East Devon Health Authority, then Director of Public Health for Mid Devon Primary Care Trust. I combined this NHS work with academic work at the University of Exeter as founding Director of the Peninsula Technology Assessment Group (PenTAG), becoming a full time academic at Exeter in 2003. I was appointed to a Chair in Public Health in 2007.
