Overview

Jennie Hayes is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Applied Research Collaboration South West Peninsula (PenARC) (http://arcswp.nihr.ac.uk). Jennie's current post is part of a study led by Dr Sarah Brand aiming to understand what works about a child protection pathway re-design in partnership with practitioners in children's social care.

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.

Prior to her current post she was ESRC Postdoctoral Fellow in the Relational Health Team and a Research Associate at the University of Bristol researching how clinicians manage antibiotic prescribing in out-of-hours practice (the OPEN project).
