Areas of expertise I am Professor of Primary Health Care and head of the Centre for Academic Primary Care. I am also a practising GP, working in a disadvantaged area of Bristol. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners and on the board or executive of several organisations including the NIHR School for Primary Care Research, the NIHR Health Services Research Board, and the Society for Academic Primary Care.

My research interests relate to the organisation and delivery of primary health care and core values of primary care, such as access to health care, the doctor-patient relationship, generalism vs. specialism and co-ordination of care.

This has led to studies of out-of-hours care, NHS Walk-in Centres, nurse practitioners, GPs with special interests, and appointment systems. I am currently leading a large programme of research on the potential role of telehealth in helping people with long term health conditions.
Media experience I have taken part in several interviews on both national and local radio, including on Radio 4's 'World at One'. I have also appeared in an RCGP/BMTV video on asthma care, and in a BBC television documentary on the future of nursing in primary care.
