Sue's PhD explored the patient's experience entitled: From health crises to home: an embedded multi-case study of the experiences and perceptions of older people which involved being the locality lead researcher in a national project funded by the NHS Service Delivery Organisation exploring the unplanned hospital admissions for older people over the age of 75..
