Overview

Tamsin Newlove-Delgado is a Senior Clinical Lecturer with the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Research Collaboration (ChYMe) and an Honorary Consultant in Public Health Medicine with Public Health England. Influenced by her clinical experience in child and adolescent psychiatry prior to entering public health, Tamsin's research concentrates on public health aspects of the mental health of children and young people, with a particular interest in the transition from child to adult services, and in the application of epidemiological methods for service planning. She is currently funded by an NIHR Advanced Fellowship, which aims to study time trends in child and adolescent mental health and mental health related service contacts.

Tamsin completed her PhD with the Child Mental Health Group in 2016, which was funded by an NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship. Her PhD examined 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). Following her PhD, she was appointed to an NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer post, working with the Child Mental Health Group while she completed her Public Health training. Tamsin was a co-investigator 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. 

Tamsin also has a strong interest in supporting junior clinical and public health academics and in encouraging students and trainees to consider clinical academic careers. She is an accredited academic supervisor, as well as the interim Specialty Tutor for Exeter for the South West Public Health Training Scheme, and also acts as the lead for clinical academics in ChYMe.

Research specialisms

Tamsin’s main area of specialism is in child psychiatric epidemiology and health services research. Her previous research has involved large dataset analysis using the British Child and Adolescent Mental Health Surveys, and the Clinical Practice Research Datalink, utilising methods such as survival analysis. She also has experience in mixed methods health services research and qualitative research with young people, and has worked as a reviewer and author on large systematic reviews.

Tamsin is also developing expertise in the use of surveillance systems. She is currently leading on a surveillance study of Sydenham's chorea which is being conducted through the British Paediatric Surveillance Unit and the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Surveillance Service, working with colleagues across the UK and Ireland (https://www.rcpch.ac.uk/bpsu-study-sydenhams-chorea). The study is funded by the Paul Polani Prize from the British Academy of Childhood Disability and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, and by the Helen H Lawson Award from the BMA Foundation.
