Projects per year
I am a GP and NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer with an interest in how GPs use tests in primary care. My research uses a mixture of qualitative and quantitative methods to answer questions about when doctors should use blood tests, how they should interpret results, and how to share information about tests with patients. My recent work has focussed on the use of blood tests called inflammatory markers.
