Research Summary

I currently manage a five year programme of research on the prediction and management of cardiovascular disease risk in people with severe mental illnesses.  The programme is funded by a National Institute for Health Research Programme Grant for Applied Research (RP-PG-0609-10156).

Previously I worked on a systematic review and qualitative studies looking at the feasibility and acceptability of offering financial incentives to improve adherence to treatments for people with schizophrenia and substance misuse problems. I also managed the UK centre for a European project aimed at improving the physical health of patients with mental health problems on inpatient wards and supported housing (The HELPS study).
