I am a research student funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) through the Grand Union Doctoral Training Pathway, studying at The Open University. I have just started my 5th year part-time and am under-taking research alongside my professional role as a General Practitioner.
My doctoral studies are about what is it like to be a family member or carer of someone living with type 2 diabetes. I am currently writing up my research findings of the lived experience and psychosocial needs of my research participants.
I have been a GP trainer for 18 years through Oxford and Cambridge GP schools.
