Associate Professor in Vascular Rheumatology and Honorary Consultant Rheumatologist
University of Leeds / Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS TrustEngland - Yorkshire and Humber
I'm a rheumatologist based in Leeds. My mission is to improve the outcomes of patients with two linked diseases: giant cell arteritis (GCA) and polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR).
In the article linked to below, you can find our story of how clinical pathways for GCA were affected by the first wave of the COVID pandemic.
I am interested in seeing things differently (patient involvement, and multiple perspectives), collaboration across speciality and organisational boundaries, and doing things differently (improvement and innovation).
Q Exchange ideas
Steroids cause many side-effects. But monitoring for side-effects requires improvement. We need to better understand the patient perspective in order to design digital solutions for early detection.
