Research Group Lead: Tom Marshall

We undertake analysis of routine datasets to investigate and improve quality of care in UK health services.

In primary care this includes analysis of electronic primary care records to investigate the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular diseases: identifying unmet need for preventive treatments in those with atrial fibrillation, left ventricular systolic dysfunction and at high risk of cardiovascular disease.

In secondary care this includes of routinely collected data in hospitals and hospital mortality and investigation of factors predictive of in-hospital mortality. In accident and emergency care we investigate geospacial and sociodemographic factors influencing service use.
