Academic Clinical Fellow
I studied medicine at Imperial College London with an intercalated degree in gastroenterology and hepatology. I was appointed to the Academic Foundation Programme in Oxford, and then moved to London to begin my anaesthetics training. I began my registrar training in the East of England deanery where I am currently an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in anaesthesia and a Specialist Registrar in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine working at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge.
Critical care outreach teams (CCOTs) were introduced in an attempt to reduce morbidity and mortality through the earlier detection and resuscitation of acutely deteriorating patients. However, there are many different models of critical care outreach systems across the UK and internationally. My research aims to utilise a systems engineering approach to identify the optimal configuration of a critical care outreach system, and subsequently determine the most appropriate metrics to measure the success or impact of a CCOT.
