Research

My research interests include the assessment of service and care provision for individuals with health problems (including mental health and addiction problems), the evaluation of treatment effectiveness, and the roles of health professionals in service development, organisation and delivery. I use both quantitative and qualitative research methods. Since joining LSHTM I have been involved in a study evaluating the modernisation of adult critical care services in England, an evaluation of an intervention designed to reduce tap water scalding, and an evaluation of Community Foundation Trusts pilots, and an evaluation of the Public Health Responsibility Deal Evaluation. I am currently Co-PI with Professor Nicholas Mays on the national Evaluation of the Integrated Care and Support Pioneers in England (2015-2020).
