Dr Bayly has a Graduate Diploma in Physiotherapy from the Leeds School of Physiotherapy (1987), a Masters of Research in Health Sciences from the University of Liverpool (2011) and a PhD from King’s College London (2020).

After qualifying, Dr Bayly worked in a variety of clinical posts before taking up a specialist role in palliative care at a Hospice in North Liverpool from 1996-2015. She spent a year in Oxford as a project manager for a feasibility trial of an intervention to support informal carers before joining the Cicely Saunders Institute in June 2016 as a National Institute of Health Research Clinical Doctoral Research Fellow.

During her PhD research, Dr Bayly developed and tested a model of short-term rehabilitation for people with newly diagnosed lung cancer or mesothelioma in a randomised controlled feasibility trial.  Her post-doctoral research interests include models of care for people living with advanced disease and multi-morbidity with a focus on rehabilitation in palliative care.
