Senior Clinical Lecturer in Transfusion Medicine

I am a Consultant Haematologist for NHS Blood and Transplant, and Senior Clinical Lecturer in Transfusion Medicine. My research in transfusion medicine focuses on the safe and appropriate use of blood components (red blood cells, platelets, plasma, cryoprecipitate) and their alternatives. A lot of my work has examined the use of platelet transfusions in people with haematological malignancies, and risk factors for bleeding. My research work involves systematic reviews (Cochrane and non-Cochrane); clinical trials; and clinical studies. I work with several other organisations to improve health and healthcare. 

I am the Clinical Lead for the National Comparative Audit in Blood Transfusion, Director of NHSBT Clinical Trials Unit and Clinical Tutor for NHSBT. 

I am the co-ordinating editor of Cochrane Haematological Malignancies and an editor of the journal Transfusion Medicine.
