Over that time I have bee​n involved in a range of funded projects, and completed my PhD in 2007.

My most recent substantial research role was as Project Manager from April 2014 = January 2017 for the multi-institutional NIHR-funded mixed-methods study 'Measuring Quality in Community Nursing (QuICN)' led by Dr Sue Horrocks from UWE.
