Staff Profile

Simon Briscoe

Information Specialist

Kath Maguire

I joined the University of Exeter Medical School (UEMS) as an information specialist in September 2012. Since May 2017 I have mainly worked with the Exeter Health Services & Delivery Research (HS&DR) Evidence Synthesis Centre, which is supported by PenCLAHRC. My role is to carry out literature searching for reviews, mainly by using bibliographic and grey literature databases, and to provide reviewing support. I am also part of the UEMS information specialist team and Evidence Synthesis and Modelling for health Improvement (ESMI).

I previously worked as an information specialist for Warwick Evidence at the University of Warwick (2011-2012) and as a clinical librarian and library assistant at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (2010-2011). I have an MSc in Library and Information Studies from City University, London (2009).
