This group’s work focuses on the epidemiology of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and inequalities in morbidity and health care utilisation.
We make extensive use of the QRESEARCH database, the largest primary care database of its kind worldwide, containing a wealth of longitudinal data from patients in over 500 UK practices.
We have undertaken important clinical epidemiological studies determining risks and benefits associated with commonly prescribed drugs (antidepressants, statins, steroids, NSAIDs and Cox-2 inhibitors).
Our work has directly influenced government policy, e.g. by deriving a model to inform re-distributing more than £2 billion of primary care funding, developing a new measure of primary care activity, formally adopted by the National Accounts and a new cardiovascular risk score (QRISK) for identifying patients at high risk of heart disease.
