Biography

I am a Research Fellow in Safe Use of Medicines with particular interest in medicines management, transitions of care and frailty. I am currently investigating deprescribing (i.e. the process of tapering and stopping medicines) and how it can be used to improve the health of older patients living with frailty. I am also collaborating in a National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) programme exploring and improving medicines management at transitions of care for people with heart failure. Before I joined the University of Bradford I was involved in a study investigating Organisational Culture in community pharmacy and its possible link to community pharmacists perceptions of work pressures, as part of my PhD at the University of Manchester. I have always had a strong interest in conducting research involving patients and their experiences of healthcare.
