Background /personal summary
Philip is a Research Manager in the Research and Evidence Team at NECS (North of England Care System Support Organisation). In this role he works across research and evaluation projects while providing advice and guidance on research governance processes conducted by NECS along with support roles for NHS staff engaging in research. He also has a clinical background in Diagnostic Radiography working across A&E specialist hospitals, community hospitals and in surgical theatres. Familiar with most forms of medical imaging, he holds a keen interest in new imaging modalities and utilisation of unusual contrast agents.
Previously he has worked as a Research Associate at Teesside University contributing to a project to enable access to greater self-management resources for patients with COPD. More recently he has completed delivering a pilot evidence synthesis service to a variety of healthcare commissioning staff across the NENC ICB. The innovative approach to bringing evidence to bear on current healthcare challenges has influenced policy from Extra Care Housing plans to innovative Animal Assisted Therapy options for children and young people with autism.
In his roles Philip is committed to bringing evidence to the forefront of clinical practice, healthcare commissioning decisions and the designing of healthcare services. He views research and innovation as key to achieving this.
Summary of research project
Philip is leading the DePCo study which is an investigation into stakeholder (patients and staff) perceptions of the design and delivery of Post-COVID services across the North East and North Cumbria Region. Co-ordinating across 8 NHS Trusts, this study seeks to understand the design process of a new service which was created at pace with an emerging evidence base, a unique situation since the beginning of the evidence-based medicine paradigm being adopted within the NHS.
