I am Deputy Director (Clinical Effectiveness), South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Deputy Director, North East Quality Observatory Service.

Patient Safety Lead, Academic Health Science Network, North East and North Cumbria.

My background is in NHS measurement and I have particular interests in Health Services Research, Epidemiology and Statistical Process Control.

I have been working on Quality Improvement since 1998. I'm particularly interested in hospital mortality and the time-sensitive conditions, like AMI, stroke, FNOF, sepsis, CAP, AKI, VTE and frailty that cause the highest volumes of it. As a result, Patient Safety is my main focus. The requirements placed on the NHS from March 2017 to learn from deaths in care are especially important, including the introduction of Medical Examiners.
