Staff Profile

Dr Mark Perry

NHS Liaison

Kath Maguire

As a Consultant Rheumatologist at Plymouth Healthcare NHS Trust, I seek to enable people with rheumatic disease to maximise their ability to self-manage the personal impact of illness, and to develop services that are increasingly patient focused and efficient.

As NHS Liaison for PenCLAHRC and Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer I seek to help those people who like me sometimes find numbers confusing, to find practical strategies to help them and their teams think critically. In my role with the Clinical Decision Making program at PenCLAHRC, I work with both the public, postgraduate healthcare professionals, and Plymouth University Peninsula School of Medicine and Dentistry. I co-authored a trial of Patient Initiated Access Clinics for people with rheumatoid arthritis, lead a team delivering Rheumatology Direct Access clinics which won the Health Service Journal Award 2016, and advise nationally on developing similar services in other specialities.
