Public Health Research Group

PHRG is Chaired by Dr Andrew Finney. Groups are planned bi-monthly for the remainder of 2019. Andrew has only recently taken over as Chair of this group, and is currently recruiting members and exploring a seminar launch in the early Spring.

Chair: Dr Andrew Finney

Broad group aims would be:

  • To promote wide-ranging research with links to public health.
  • To engage with staff and clinicians to provide mutual support, guidance and collaborative opportunities.
  • To develop a number of defined projects to enable collaborative working, project implementation and joint publications.

There are 18 registered PHRG members of which 6 active members are from clinical practice. This is a real positive and something which we are aiming to encourage.

Sandra Ball administers the group and can be contacted on
