Research and scholarship

I am a Research Physiotherapy facilitator for the West Midlands Primary Care Research Network (PCRN) team. My role within the research team at Keele involves participating in Keele and PCRN research trials / studies and providing a link between Keele and the community NHS trusts in helping with the operational issues of the studies in the primary care setting.
