Implementation of outcome measures in palliative care.

Identifying and supporting deteriorating patients with uncertain recovery

The role of uncertainty in patients’ experience of life limiting illness Care of older people with non-cancer diagnoses


I qualified from the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine with a distinction in 2009. In 2006 I undertook an intercalated BA in Neuroscience. Since 2009 I have worked as a junior doctor in London, Sussex & Kent & am a Member of the Royal College of Physicians. I studied at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in 2012 and gained a Diploma in Hygiene and Tropical Medicine with distinction.  From 2012 – 2015 I worked as an Academic Clinical Fellow in palliative care where he combined 75% clinical time with 25% protected research time at King’s College London. I am now undertaking higher clinical training to become a palliative care specialist.In February 2016 I returned to the Cicely Saunders Institute as a clinical PhD fellow, taking part in the IARE (International Access, Rights, and Empowerment) II project. This project, funded by Atlantic Philanthropies and Cicely Saunders International, will consider how older people with non-cancer diagnoses access palliative care.
