I entered research after many years of involvement with patient organisations, at first in a voluntary capacity and then professionally. I am still a voluntary trustee of a UK patient charity and I maintain an academic interest in the inclusion of representative patient and carer perspectives in research prioritisation, design and conduct.
I am also interested in the identification of research needs and in health services research which can inform service delivery domestically and in developing countries and under-resourced regions of the world.
I would like to see health research identify those challenges and issues where research can make significant differences to the lives and opportunities of patients and the clinicians to whom they turn for help, both nationally and internationally.
