Katrina is Professor of Primary Care Research, Head of Section of Applied Health Research in the Bristol Medical School, and Joint-Head of the Centre for Academic Primary Care and the Bristol NIHR School for Primary Care Research (SPCR). She is also the Qualitative Science work stream lead in Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) west, and a collaborator on the NIHR Bristol Biomedical Research Centre.
Katrina has worked within health service/primary care research for over 20 years. She is a qualitative methodologist with a disciplinary background in social sciences applied to health. As a methodologist, she works across multiple projects, providing expertise and leadership. Much of Katrina’s research has involved integrating qualitative studies within large randomised controlled trials and programme grants. These studies have been used to develop and evaluate complex interventions, ensure successful trial delivery, aid interpretation of trial results, and to inform implementation of cost-effective interventions across the NHS. Katrina’s research has informed NICE guidelines, been cited in Government documents and presented to the House of Commons.
Katrina was a member of the NIHR Health Technology Assessment (HTA) commissioning board (2017-20) and an Associate Editor for BMC Family Practice (2016-20).
