I joined LSHTM in September 2006 following completion of public health training in the UK NHS. Prior to entering the world of public health I was a General Practitioner. The focus of my work has been on the assessment of healthcare-related patient harm and understanding the mechanisms that drive that harm.

I was PI on the Preventable Incidents, Survival and Mortality studies that determined the scope and scale of avoidable deaths in the English NHS acute hospitals and the utility of mortality review for quality improvement. I have a national advisory role related to the implementation of the National Mortality Case Record Review Programme across English hospitals.

I am currently a Health Foundation Improvement Science Fellow. The focus of this 3 year fellowship is to design an approach to patient safety analysis across time.

From January 2019 I will become Associate Director for a new NIHR-funded Policy Research Unit- Quality, Safety and Outcomes of Health and Social Care.
