I joined ScHARR in September 1998 and am currently a Professor of Public Health and Deputy Dean of ScHARR.
Since completing higher specialist training in general practice and public health, I have pursued interests in both developing the public health evidence base and getting evidence into practice through research and teaching. I have an NHS honorary contract with NHS Sheffield and contribute to public health training in both East Midlands and Yorkshire and Humber regions.
I have a research programme in the fields of type 2 diabetes and health inequalities, currently with a focus on evidence-based public health – both evidence synthesis and knowledge translation.
Type 2 diabetes
This is a field of increasing public health importance and of national and international priority. Changes in lifestyles, particularly increasing obesity linked to diet and reductions in physical activity, mean that diabetes will continue to represent a growing threat to public health and major source of increased demand for health services. Our research programme includes both primary research and the synthesis of evidence for the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of diabetes prevention interventions, including risk assessment, in high risk populations.
Inequalities in health and in access to health services are also key areas in current public health policy, with ambitious national targets to reduce inequalities. The South Yorkshire Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) which has attracted £10 million in NIHR funding and £10 million in matched funding over five years (from 2008 to 2013), provides a major opportunity to ensure that tackling inequalities is embedded in both chronic disease research projects and in the implementation of research findings. The CLAHRC Inequalities programme is working across all the other disease-specific CLAHRC themes to develop projects that directly address health equity.
My contribution to teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students, both clinical and non-clinical, across a range of different courses is informed by my clinical background and training and on-going involvement in public health policy and practice. I am currently involved in the development of the public health component of undergraduate medical education in Sheffield and I contribute both to the delivery and development of NHS specialist training in both East Midlands and Yorkshire and Humber. I also teach on research methods, ethics and public health policy across a number of courses including the MB ChB and ScHARR MPH.
I am interested in supervising Research Students in topics related to inequalities and major public health issues, particularly in relation to diabetes risk assessment, prevention and management.
