Overview

Sarah is a Research Fellow in the Discovery Group, and part of the CanTest collaborative, based in Primary Care within the University of Exeter Medical School. CanTest aims to assess the accuracy, safety, cost effectiveness and suitability of a range of diagnostic methods and tools to improve cancer diagnostics in primary care. Sarah is involved in several projects investigating the impact of multi-morbidity on cancer diagnosis, evaluating the effectiveness of faecal immunochemical tests (FITs) for colorectal cancer, studying the effects of risk markers on risk factors for colorectal cancer, and a range of follow-up projects to her PhD on the association between platelet count and cancer. 

Upon moving to the Discovery Group led by Prof. Willie Hamilton in 2014, she began her PhD on the association between thrombocytosis (raised platelet count) and cancer diagnosis, which was completed in Autumn 2016. Specifically, her PhD found that thrombocytosis is an important risk marker of undiagnosed cancer in primary care, particularly in men aged over 40 years. This work has had a significant impact on clinical practice since its publication in 2017, and was the top-rated paper of the British Journal of General Practice in that year. This is one of her personal highlights from her career to date, alongside being interviewed for Radio 4’s Inside Health programme, learning to drive a tractor, and swimming an entire length of the University’s pool underwater.
