I am an Honorary Clinical Lecturer at the Division of Population Medicine at Cardiff University School of Medicine and a GP Partner at Ringland Health Centre in Newport. 

Alongside this I am also an ST4 Specialty Registrar in Public Health with Public Health Wales on a training programme to become a Consultant in Public Health and am a member of the Faculty of Public Health Primary Care/Public Health Special Interest Group. Finally I support the Steering Group of Deep End Cymru, a Welsh Government-funded, Royal College of GPs Wales-hosted network looking to tackle health inequalities through research, advocacy and improved primary care service provision.

I am interested in research, policy and teaching on health inequalities including the role of primary care & health professionals in promoting health equity and how the NHS and frontline services can work better on the prevention of illness.


I am open to working with colleagues on projects including:

  • exploratory analysis research to better understand trends in population health inequalities
  • research to inform policy in Wales and the UK regarding health inequalities particularly around primary care
  • developing interventions to improve NHS and primary care practice to tackle health inequalities (healthcare & wider determinants of health)

Current projects

Research on health inequalities:

  • Measuring the contribution of health-related behaviours (including smoking, alcohol and others) to life expectancy inequalities in Wales and to lifespan inequalities
  • Decomposing changes in life expectancy inequalities between 1997-2010 in England by condition- and age to understand the impact of the English Health Inequalities Strategy

Research on role of NHS and primary care in tackling health inequalities

  • Developing a simple pathway to improve identification and management of alcohol misuse in primary care based on the Ottawa Model for smoking cessation in primary care
  • Exploring the equity of General Medical Services allocations to primary care in Wales based on research in Scotland by Deep End GPs


My teaching roles include supervising medical student student-selected component (SSC) projects, modules on the Global Health module of the Cardiff University Masters in Public Health and epidemiology and evidence-based medicine teaching on the C21 medical programme.
