Research overview

My broad research interests are in the areas of public health  and undergraduate medical education. My public health research looks at infectious diseases and the role of paediatric public health in secondary care (with a focus on children's public health in acute care settings). My education research focuses on the hidden aspects of the undergraduate medical curriculum - including the role of learning environments and the influence of social networks. 

Current Research

Current projects include:-

  • development of a healthcare education micro learning environment measure (funded by Health Education England, North West)
  • influences on the update of the seasonal influenza vaccine by healthcare workers in secondary care, work with Rhiannon Edge
  • piloting a public health intervention for children/carers attending the Paediatric Emergency Department (funded by the Sir Halley Stewart Trust)
  • work with the Cochrane Infectious Diseases Group at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.

Current Teaching

I am involved in teaching students across all five years of the undergraduate medical programme.

Additional Information

I am a Senior Clinical Lecturer and also Head of Lancaster Medical School. I am also a medical doctor working in Paediatric Emergency Medicine and Public Health.
