Overview

Mary has worked in health research for over 20 years on a range of studies, which have mainly been based in general practices, and have involved clinicians and patients.  As well as using her qualitative research skills, she has also conducted a ‘mystery shopper’ examination of the availability of GP appointments, applied mixed methods to investigate the acceptability of online GP consultations and was a researcher on MIR, a multi-centre randomised controlled trial which investigated the effectiveness of an additional anti-depressant in general practice patients.  After working on the SPA pilot study of singing for people with aphasia, Mary left Exeter University to study for a PhD about pharmacists and prescribing in general practice at the University of Bath.  Mary is now back in Exeter and balancing her work as a qualitative Research Fellow on the SPOCC (Spotting Cancer among Comorbidities) research programme with the final stages of writing for her PhD.
