Jeremy is a Principal Research Fellow in Heath Economics, within Health Sciences at the University of Southampton. His research within the Workforce research group is focussed on safe nurse staffing, workload and the costs of alternative approaches to providing safe hospital care. He is currently working on studies of the use of acuity/ dependency-based planning tools to determine hospital staffing and on the costs & consequences of the implementation of safe staffing policies in England following the Francis Inquiry.

Prior to joining Health Sciences, Jeremy was the Health Economics in Southampton Health Technology Assessments Centre (SHTAC), within Medicine where he worked on economic evaluations for a range of policy customers, including the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

Implementation, impact and costs of policies for safe staffing in acute trusts

Through a survey and case studies, this study will evaluate the extent to which safe staffing policies following the Francis Inquiry have been implemented, how that varies from place to place, the factors that have shaped implementation, and describe the costs & consequences of implementation.

Identifying nurse-staffing requirements using the Safer Nursing Care Tool. Modelling the costs and consequences of real world application to address variation in patient need on hospital wards

The study examines how patients' need for nursing care, varies from day to day and explores how well staffing matches need when using the ‘Safer Nursing Care Tool’. We also simulate the costs and consequences of different ways of deploying nurses to meet varying need.

Development and Clinical trial of a mixed (Multi/single-use) catheter management package for users of Intermittent Catheters - MultICath

This is a randomised controlled trial in which participants must be willing to use one of two intermittent catheterisation strategies which will be randomly allocated by computer.

Mechanical Muscle Activity with Real-time Kinematics (M-MARK): A novel combination of existing technologies to improve arm recovery following stroke

Safe staffing in ICU: development and testing of a staffing model

What is the best model for the allocation of nurses to patients in intensive care settings in England and how does it impact on patient, family, workforce and organisational outcomes?

Consequences, costs and cost-effectiveness of different workforce configurations in English acute hospitals: a longitudinal retrospective study using routinely collected data

This study seeks to understand how variation in the size and make-up of care teams on hospital wards in England influences patient outcomes and the costs of care.

Safer and more efficient vital signs monitoring to identify the deteriorating patient: An observational study towards deriving evidence-based protocols for patient surveillance on the general hospital ward

Taking measurements of heart rate, blood pressure, temperature and other vital signs is an important part of care for nearly all patients in hospital but we still need to find out how often we should monitor patients.
