Biography

Currently I am the lead academic for the Higher Education East Midlands (HEEM, formerly 'The Deanery') General Practice (GP) fellows. HEEM GP fellows are funded by HEEM to undertake up to one year part-time at the University of Nottingham whilst they undertake a Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education. There are currently five HEEM GP fellows, of whom I am directly supervising one in his second year and co-supervising another in her first year. In addition I am the course convener for the Community Follow-Up (CFU) module which is taught to medical students in two year groups. I also undertake research which will have an impact on the health and wellbeing of children and young people.

Recent Publications

In addition to being the lead academic for the Higher Education East Midlands (HEEM, formerly 'The Deanery') funded General Practice (GP) Fellows, I work in the Primary Care Education Unit (PCEU) as the course convener for the Community Follow-Up (CFU) module. I have worked as the Strategic Director of an undergraduate module and have managed other clinical and administrative staff. In total we have approximately 600 medical students undertaking this one-year-long module that spans the second year to the third year in the five year undergraduate curriculum. The module has four separate streams of students (undergraduates, graduates, international students from Thailand and international students from Malaysia) that join the module at various points. I have also supervised 3 medical students undertaking research for the Bachelor of Medical Sciences degree. The work of one of these medical students led to a publication in a high impact factor peer-reviewed journal

Current Research

Currently I am completing work using the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) and linked data arising from my PhD thesis. I am undertaking literature reviews about problems affecting children and young people in primary care.

Past Research

During the course of my PhD (completed in 2016), the title of my thesis was 'The epidemiology of injuries in epilepsy and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children and young adults using the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) and linked data.' I conducted a series of three linked studies using GP medical records and linked hospital medical records to: (i) estimate the risk of specific injuries in children and young people (CYP) with epilepsy compared to CYP without; (ii) estimate the recorded prevalence of ADHD in English primary care; (iii) estimate the risk of specific injuries in CYP with ADHD compared to CYP without. I am conducting research in primary care with the Injury Epidemiology and Prevention Research Group.

I was funded by a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded Doctoral Research Fellowship. Prior to that I held an NIHR In-Practice Fellowship that allowed me to undertake a Masters in Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM).

Future Research

I aim to conduct research that will have an impact on the health and wellbeing of children and young people. Currently my interests lie in the mental health of this population and non-communicable diseases as seen and managed by General Practicitioners in primary care. I am interested in hearing from prospective PhD students.
