Tamsin Newlove-Delgado is an NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer and a senior specialty registrar in Public Health with the South West Public Health Training Scheme. She currently combines her research with completing her training to be a public health consultant. Having spent time training in child psychiatry before moving into public health, Tamsin’s main area of research interest is in public health aspects of child mental health. She completed her PhD with the Child Mental Health Group in 2016, which was funded by an NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship. Her PhD focussed on two aspects of service provision for children and young people with psychiatric disorders in the UK; mental health related service contact in school aged children and transition from child to adult services in young people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). 

Tamsin is a co-applicant on the Children and adolescents with ADHD in transition between children’s services and adult services (CATCh-uS) study and is particularly interested in the roles and perspectives of GPs regarding managing ADHD in young people in primary care. She is also has experience in conducting systematic reviews, and is currently leading on a Cochrane Systematic Review of dietary interventions in recurrent abdominal pain in children. 

Research specialisms

Tamsin’s PhD involved large dataset analysis using the British Child and Adolescent Mental Health Survey 2004, and the Clinical Practice Research Datalink, where she utilized methods such as survival analysis. During her PhD she also developed experience in qualitative research and interviewing young people. She has also worked as a reviewer and author on large systematic reviews.
