Personal profile

Research interests

The majority of my recent work has focused on the (doctor) workforce of the National Health Service (NHS) of England, for which I have created a reterospective longitudinal database charting the careers of 200,000 doctors between 1991 and 2004.

My research in this area includes studies of NHS workforce participation among international medical graduates, causal factors of 'job separation' (quitting) amongst general practitioners (GPs), and the profile of salaried GPs (GPsemployed by a practice or Primary Care Trust). I have also been involved in similar studies of UK pharmacists.


I am a Statistician at the National Primary Care Research and Development Centre, where I have been employed since 1997.

I began my academic career at the University of Southampton in 1988, graduating with a BSc in Mathematics with Statistics and an MSc in Social Statistics. Following this, I spent twelve months in the Department of Social Statistics researching the effects of low-flying military aircraft on the extra-auditory health of exposed residential populations in England.

In 1993, I moved to Liverpool John Moores University, where I gained my PhD in Statistics for work on the analysis of data from biological assays. I joined the University of Manchester in 1996, working for twelve months in the Age and Cognitive Performance Research Centre, before taking up my current post the following year.
