My research interests lie in diagnosis and management of common infections in primary care and in the generation of evidence for new diagnostic technologies in primary care settings. I am also interested in characterising the work of the primary care Out-of-Hours services and exploring the ways this service could be improved by use of new technologies or different models of care.
I am the Deputy Director of the NIHR Community Healthcare MedTech and IVD Cooperative. I am PI of CONDUCT, a large RCT evaluating methods for reducing urine sample contamination rates, and PROBE, a mixed methods study exploring the clinical impact of point of care blood testing in the out of hours service. I was joint PI of the TOAST trial, a large RCT comparing oral dexamethasone to placebo for symptom relief of acute sore throat. Other current projects include qualitative interviews to explore the GPs use of the diagnostic markers of infection in the elderly and a methods comparison study of thermometers for children aged 5 and under. I sit on the NHS England AMR Diagnostic Collaborative.
I am a practicing GP in Oxford city.
