About me

Michele Biddle (nee Kok) is a Research Fellow in Public Health at the University of the West of England (UWE), Bristol, and has a background in hospital and regulatory pharmacy. Michele is an Associate Fellow of The Higher Education Academy (HEA) and contributes to teaching on the MSc in Public Health and Public Health Practitioner Degree Apprenticeship (BSc Public Health) programmes.

Michele's ongoing and recent research projects include:

Ageing Well: Evaluation of the Bristol, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire Integrated Care Board (BNSSG ICB) Ageing Well programme to examine the role of the Voluntary and Community Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector in supporting the anticipatory care agenda, and to bring together the systems and process learning to arise from the programme.

Neighbours Connect Southmead: Evaluation based on the principles of Social Return on Investment (SROI) to assess the social value generated by the model and whether it achieves cost-savings to the Adult Social Care system.  

Opening the black box: Examining novel formats for socially diverse participation in research: A collaborative Quality-Related Research (QR) project between the Centre for Public Health and Wellbeing and the Science Communication Unit, using novel 'living/live research and lab' projects to develop a series of case studies focussing on how participants from a wide range of backgrounds can be integrated into the production of scientific knowledge.

Strengthening Local Communities: Evaluation of the Gloucestershire Place-based Community Development Programme to test and develop innovative practice with respect to the promotion of health and wellbeing in community settings. This is in partnership with the Gloucestershire County Council Public Health Division, Clinical Commissioning Group, and Gloucestershire District Councils.

COMBACTE-MAGNET (Combatting Bacterial Resistance in Europe – Molecules against Gram Negative Infections): Completed a systematic review of the attitudes and approaches to public involvement in Europe. Also published a toolkit for public involvement in antimicrobial medicines development research, within a work package for a consortium of pharmaceutical companies and academic partners, funded by a European public-private funding initiative – Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI). She has co-delivered workshops to support the use of this toolkit.
