BiographyI am a researcher in emergency care and a practising doctor in emergency medicine in Sheffield. My research interests are wide-ranging and include evaluations of the way emergency care is organised, clinical trials of health technologies, studies of diagnostic tests for medical emergencies and economic evaluations. I have led studies of deep vein thrombosis, minor head injury and suspected acute coronary syndrome that have influenced national and international guidelines for diagnosis of these conditions. I led the evaluation of the National Infarct Angioplasty Pilots that resulted in primary angioplasty being implemented as standard care for people with a heart attack. I also chair the NIHR Health Technology Assessment Clinical Evaluation and Trials Board and chair trial steering committees for other researchers. I am an international editor for Annals of Emergency Medicine, the leading international emergency medicine journal.
