Research Summary

Chantal is a Specialty Registrar in Public Health (St4) on the South West London, Surrey and Sussex NHS training scheme. She is currently based at UCL within the Collaborative Centre for Inclusion Health within the Institute of Epidemiology and Health Care, to undertake an NIHR Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship supervised by Professor Andrew Hayward. Her additional PhD supervisors  are Dr Georgia Black (qualitative), Dr Julie George (Public Health) and Dr Rachael Hunter (Health economics).

Her fellowship centres on researching the implementation and evaluation of telemedicine for secondary care appointments within prisons in Surrey. As a clinical doctoral fellowship Chantal also remains involved in the clinical implementation of the service, and holds honorary clinical contracts with Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Central North West London NHS Foundation Trust.

Chantal also holds a grant from the Wellcome Trust to develop a short animated film based on qualitative data collection in prisons, to engage hospital clinicians in the issues prisoners experience when accessing secondary care appointments, to encourage them to design more inclusive services for this traditionally underserved population. This work is being undertaken in partnership with User Voice charity and Passion Pictures animation studio.

Chantal’s primary research centres within the field of health and justice but she also has a strong interest in the wider field of inclusion health and healthcare public health. Prior to joining the public health training scheme she worked for eight years as an influenza scientist at the National Institute for Biological Standards and Control, where she was involved in provision of information to WHO to aid in seasonal influenza vaccine strain selection.
