David is Professor of Mental Health Services Research at the University of Exeter.  He runs the University's Complex Interventions Research Group. and is leading the new University of Exeter Academy of Nursing which will take its first students in 2018.

David has been a mental health nurse for over 30 years. After nursing auxiliary, student and staff nurse experiences he took an 18 month post-registration qualification in nurse behaviour therapy at the Institute of Psychiatry and Maudsley Hospital London, specialising in delivering treatments for people with anxiety problems. This was his first exposure to the possibility of working in research. After a number of jobs, including as a research assistant and a nurse tutor, he studied first for a bachelors degree (this being well before nursing was a graduate profession) and then a PhD. For the last 17 years he has been working as a researcher in academic settings.

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) has been fundamental to David’s career. Since 2006, NIHR has been the main funder of applied health services research in England. NIHR has funded much of his research, which has focussed on improving access to healthcare for people with common mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression. His most significant contribution to healthcare in the UK was as part of the team that established the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme at the Department of Health from its inception in 2005, regarded as second only in importance to the shutting down of the Victorian asylums in terms of significant mental health reform, and was Clinical Informatics Advisor to the IAPT programme from 2008-2011. David pushed for ‘low-intensity’ simple interventions to be included in IAPT as a fundamental part of the operating principles and established the base for a completely new para-professional ‘Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner’ workforce – now numbering over 3,000 in England alone – including the role definitions, curricula and training courses throughout the NHS. The research activities that delivered the evidence base for this development had been facilitated by NIHR funded awards.

More recently, although in much the same vein, David has been undertaking clinical trials of simple psychological therapies applied to depression, systems of organising depression treatment, and depression within cardiac rehabilitation services, culminating in one the most highly cited healthcare publications of 2016 which reported the results of his 'COBRA' trial in The Lancet. He has also investigated nursing roles in primary care telephone triage, a research programme he first initiated over 16 years ago. His emphasis in all this work is that people should receive rapid access to healthcare that is efficient, effective and equitable.

David is also President of the European Academy of Nursing Science (EANS). He leads both EANS and a collaborative group of nurses and other health care practitioners on a mission to improve the quality and relevance of research – the REFLECTION network. As the editor of the world’s first ever comprehensive textbook on complex interventions research methods, published April 2015 he is at the forefront of both clinical and methodological developments in health services research. One very exciting element to this – also funded by NIHR – is a programme of research to develop, test and evaluate a novel intervention system of essential nursing care. This ‘ESSENCE’ programme is looking to respond to increasing criticisms of nursing, including those in the Francis Report, that nurses have neglected their traditional caring role. He is leading an international group of nurse scientists who believe that good research can deliver the much needed evidence to directly address these criticisms and rediscover the traditional focus of nursing – hands on caring for patients.Findings from David's ESSENCE research programme will be at the heart of nursing education in University of Exeter Academy of Nursing.

David's work was recognised by the NIHR when it awarded him the status of ‘Senior Investigator’ – one of only four nurses in the group of researchers regarded by NIHR as the top 200 in England. Whilst there is much still to be done, David never forgets that research activity and its findings should always provide clinicians on the ground with information about how they can work to deliver the best possible clinical care to their patients. It is this key principle that drives him.

David is now leading the development of the University of Exeter Academy of Nursing which will take in its first undergraduate students in 2018. Until September 2016, David was programme lead for the University of Exeter Medical School's Masters in Applied Health Services Research which is structured around programmatic, mixed and sequential research methods for developing and researching complex health care interventions. He retains some teaching responsibilities for this course. David also wrote the UK national curriculum for the new national workforce of Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners (PWPs) working within the Department of Health's Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme. He has published the Department of Health's commissioned educator and student support materials with his colleague Mark Whyte from the University of York, now in their third edition and has co-edited two major textbooks: 'The Oxford Guide to Low-intensity CBT' and 'Complex Interventions in Health: An Overview of Research Methods'.
