Position: Director
Affiliation: RCGP Research and Surveillance Centre

I am a senior academic GP involved in research & surveillance. My research focuses on how routinely collected data can be used to measure health outcomes and how IT is best incorporated into clinical workflow.

I have carried studies in a wide range of disease areas using routine data. These include: chronic kidney disease (CKD), diabetes, psychological therapies, child safeguarding, heart disease, osteoporosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), vaccine preventable disease and benefits and risk.

I am interested in how to incorporate have developed video methods for observing the impact of technology on clinical workflow.
