Dr Fiona MacKichan

Lecturer in Medical Sociology

I am a qualitative researcher with interests that centre on help seeking and use of healthcare services, health and wellbeing in older age and chronic pain. My current work includes an ethnographic study of primary care level factors involved in unplanned hospital admissions, and a multi-method study of chronic pain after knee replacement.
