Research Interests

I am a medical sociologist with an interest in people’s experiences of using health care services and health systems. My previous research was about people’s use of NHS 24, which is a 24-hour telephone advice and triage service. I am also interested in health inequalities and understanding the barriers that can make it difficult for people to access and use services.

In my current role I lead on Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) for a project about Cancer and Society in the 21st Century. This means that I organise the PPI panel and support people to be involved in our research.
