Overview

Jennie Hayes is an ESRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Relational Health Group in the College of Medicine and Health. Jennie is a qualitative social psychologist with a background in group interaction, creative facilitation, diagnosis, health and wellbeing. Jennie’s PhD, part of the Wellcome Trust funded project ‘Exploring Diagnosis’, examined how clinicians make decisions about the diagnosis of autism spectrum conditions. By observing multi-disciplinary team working, Jennie was able to explore in detail how diagnostic decisions are made and impacted by social and interactional factors.

Jennie has a particular interest in the social framing of diagnostic practices, narrative, creativity and wellbeing, mental health, bereavement and loss.

During her Fellowship, Jennie will be disseminating the results from her work on autism diagnosis and scoping ideas for a new research project within the context of exploring the barriers to health and wellbeing. She is also an Honorary Research Associate at the University of Bristol researching how clinicians manage antibiotic prescribing in out-of-hours practice (the OPEN project).
