Sarah completed her Master of Public Health in 2012, and began her interdisciplinary work with law when she joined UCL in 2016. She completed her PhD in 2022, undertaking research on the implementation of health justice partnerships.

She also worked at Cancer Research UK in the Statistical Information Team, supporting communication of cancer data to the press and public.

Research Summary

Sarah’s work focusses on health-justice partnerships, in which welfare rights advice services are integrated with patient care. These partnerships provide assistance for patients with social welfare legal issues, such as welfare benefits, debt, housing and employment. They provide an integrated response to complex needs, recognising the close links between social justice and health.

Sarah’s role supports the national strategy for health-justice partnership, which aims to increase awareness and action on health justice partnerships across the country. Her work includes undertaking research, delivering education and events, developing information resources, and building a professional network.
