Angus has a background in cognitive psychology, with a focus on tactile and spatial perception in blind people. He has worked in healthcare research since 2001, covering such topics as sexuality and psychological wellbeing (UCL, 2001-2002), continuity in cancer care (UCL, 2003-2005), and quality improvement in mental health services (Royal College of Psychiatrists, 2006-2008). Prior to joining the Department of Applied Health Research, he spent four years as a researcher at the NIHR King’s Patient Safety and Service Quality Research Centre, where he contributed to several projects examining how organisational factors, such as governance systems, influence quality of care.

Research Summary

Angus is particularly interested in using mixed method evaluation approaches to understand how organisational factors influence efforts to improve quality of care and patient outcomes.

Angus’ current and recent research has focused on:

  • major system change in acute stroke services;
  • major system change in specialist cancer surgery services (RESPECT-21);
  • coordination of care for rare diseases (CONCORD);
  • political astuteness in leadership of major system change (HELPA);
  • 24/7 working in hyper acute stroke services in London (METRO24/7);
  • prehospital triage of suspected stroke patients using videoconferencing technology.

In addition, Angus recently completed an NIHR Knowledge Mobilisation Research Fellowship, which focused on evidence about reorganisation of acute stroke services. Through this fellowship he worked at national level (e.g. the NHS Long Term Plan and NHS Improvement’s Getting It Right First Time for stroke programme) and regional level (supporting development of plans for local system changes).
