David Wright is Senior Research Fellow at the Macmillan Survivorship Research Group (MSRG). He joined the group in March 2019 after working as an independent researcher and evaluator, delivering a range of projects for national and international agencies including the Wessex Institute (University of Southampton), the European Commission and the Stroke Association. During this time, David was co-investigator on a Health Foundation funded study exploring the skills frontline NHS staff use to deliver quality improvement projects. David also worked with Health Sciences delivering an evaluation of an Allied Health Professional and Nursing internship scheme funded by Versus Arthritis.

With more people diagnosed with cancer surviving their disease, we must understand the consequences of survival and ensure people affected by cancer get the right support at the right time in the right way.

David previously worked for five years at the former Macmillan Research Unit (University of Southampton) where he led and supported a range of cancer survivorship and self-management studies, including the Macmillan Listening Study – a national research prioritisation exercise involving people affected by cancer. This identified the impact of cancer on everyday life as the top priority, a finding that influenced the developing cancer survivorship agenda.

David is currently supporting a range of activities within the MSRG, including HORIZONS, a large cohort study exploring the recovery of health and well-being in adults diagnosed with cancer.
