Role

I currently lead the Centre for Primary Care in the Institute of Population Health, which is part of the NIHR School for Primary Care Research 

My work is largely within the Long-Term Conditions Theme, with a focus on mental health, multimorbidity, and service delivery.

I also work within the CLAHRC for Greater Manchester (clarhc-gm.nihr.ac.uk), and as part of the MRC North West Hub for Trials Methodology Research (http://www.liv.ac.uk/nwhtmr/)

Research

My main interests concern: effective ways of improving management of long term conditions, with a focus on multimorbidity, the delivery of effective psychological therapies for common mental health problems, and the effective recruitment of patients to randomised trials

Methodological Knowledge

My methodological interests include evidence synthesis, RCT methodology, psychometrics, and the analysis of mediation and moderation
 

Collaborators and affiliated staff

I collaborate with the Centre for Biostatistics and Health Economics within the Institute of Population Health. with the Institute of Brain, Behavioiour and Mental Health and the School of Nursing within the Faculty, and with colleagues at a range of universities in the UK and internationally
