After a first degree in biological sciences (physiology major) and economics, I did research at Guy's Hospital Medical School in planning integrated primary care in London. After training in public health medicine at LSHTM and in the NHS, I worked for many years as an NHS consultant in public health medicine, mainly in health needs assessment, health services planning, outcomes research and public health training. I am now consultant in public health for 'Individual Funding Requests' in SE London and Associate Consultant in the Public Health Action Support Team.
I teach health services research, critical appraisal, principles and practice of health care commissioning and planning, and health care demand management.
I have trained Specialist Registrars and non-medical trainees in specialist training in public health.
My main research interest is in factors affecting the appropriate use of health services. I have carried out research in cataract surgery outcomes and their relation to need for care. I am helping develop the ethical legal basis for NHS clinical decison making for clinical commissioning.
