After various hospital and community clinical posts, during which he gained a Master’s in Public Health (Birmingham, 2001), he became a principal in general practice at Wolstanton Medical Centre in Newcastle under Lyme in 2002 (https://www.wolstantonmedicalcentre.nhs.uk/). The practice was appointed as the first Keele Academic General Practice in 2017 (https://www.keele.ac.uk/agp/).


John joined Keele as a GP Research Fellow in 2008, was subsequently funded by an NIHR In-Practice Fellowship (2010-2012). He has been an NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer in Primary Care since 2017, and a Senior Lecturer in General Practice since 2018.

Research and scholarship

John's PhD thesis (2017) was entitled 'Quality indicators for the care of osteoarthritis in general practice: identification, synthesis, and implementation' (http://eprints.keele.ac.uk/3527/). His interests are predominantly in consultation epidemiology, osteoarthritis, mental health, and quality improvement. John is an active peer-reviewer for various journals (https://publons.com/researcher/1132584/john-edwards/).


John co-leads the GP Evidence-Based Practice group at Keele.

Teaching

John is the module lead for the MMedSci Evidence-Based Medicine module. He also contributes to undergraduate teaching, particularly in the public health curriculum, at Keele University Medical School. The majority of his teaching is in postgraduate GP training, as a GP trainer (educational and clinical supervisor).
