BiographyTim Peters is Professor of Primary Care Health Services Research at the University of Bristol. A statistician with 30 years’ experience of research on health and health services, mostly in primary care, his research interests focus on community-based evaluations of health interventions - from surgical and medical procedures through to organisation of health care services. Many of these evaluations involve randomised trials conducted by multidisciplinary research teams. His particular areas of interest are mental health and chronic disease.  Professor Peters has also been involved in research on the methodology of trials, especially where groups of individuals are randomised (cluster trials) and where there is interest in exploring the extent to which interventions confer greater benefit to some individuals and less to others (subgroup analyses). A further priority in his career has been the development and supervision of other researchers from a variety of backgrounds – 19 doctoral degrees amongst a total of 22 research degrees undertaken by doctors, nurses, other health care professionals and research methodologists.
