Professor Dan Lasserson is the only Professor of Ambulatory Care in the UK. His research group tackles one of the biggest challenges that healthcare is facing – the delivery of acute medical care, where needs are increasing year by year but the available resources to meet those needs are limited. Both primary and secondary care acute services are increasingly stretched and calls for new models of acute care have come from NHS England, the Royal College of Physicians and the Primary Care Workforce Commission.

In order to meet the acute medical healthcare needs of our population within our existing infrastructure, we need to deliver as much acute care as we can outside of traditional hospital environments. We still need to use the skills and resources of hospital clinicians to do this, but working in different ways, often alongside clinicians from primary care. The experience of patients and carers is critical in determining how we can change the delivery of care and increase the value of the money that we spend on health and social care.

Our group seeks to understand how we can maximise the use of ambulatory care to support the NHS in meeting the demand for acute assessment and treatment. This involves looking at diagnostic and monitoring technology, treatment delivery platforms, risk assessment and understanding patient and carer experience along the journey through acute care.

Biography

Dan Lasserson trained in Medicine in London after a Philosophy and Natural Sciences degree in Cambridge. He undertook training in acute hospital medicine with research posts in neurology and stroke medicine in London and then completed academic training in primary care in Oxford, examining the interface between specialists and generalists in the delivery of acute stroke and transient ischaemic attack services.

After a Clinical Lectureship in Primary Care in Oxford, Dan worked in both general practice and acute medicine and working with both an acute trust and community trust set up a community acute assessment unit which won the Guardian Healthcare Innovation Award for Service Delivery in 2013.

He ran the NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowship training programme in primary care in Oxford, was an executive committee member for the Society of Academic Primary Care and was awarded the John Fry medal from the Royal College of General Practitioners in 2015.

Prior to his move to Birmingham, Dan developed a new clinical role as a Senior Interface Physician working across the interface of primary and secondary care in acute medicine whilst undertaking research supported by the BRC and CLAHRC in Oxford. He was the Clinical Lead for Diagnostics and Pathways in the Oxford Academic Health Science Network and has progressed the use of point-of-care diagnostics to support change in healthcare delivery.
