Joint Lead for Patient and Public Involvement in Medical Education
Patient and Public involvement in medical education is an essential requirement of the General Medical Council (GMC). By working with patients and those with lived experience of health care, as equals during their undergraduate education, it is hoped that medical students will learn to listen to patients more effectively and continue to learn from them throughout their career. Patients and the Public are at the heart of medical education and have a key role to play in the whole educational process.
I am a Consultant Haematologist at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of Oxford. My main interests are haemoglobinopathies and rare inherited anaemias. I am dedicated to using patients' views to guide how research is conducted, how medical students are taught, and how services are designed for high quality care.
