Dr Eloise Radcliffe is a Research Fellow working in Academic Geriatric Medicine at the University of Southampton. She is a qualitative researcher with a background in social science and has 18 years of experience working in health services research and evaluation in both academic settings and voluntary sector organisations. She is currently working on the MODIFY study funded by NIHR Wessex Applied Research Collaboration (ARC). The study aims to investigate how a multidisciplinary, person-centred structured medication review and deprescribing intervention could be best implemented in primary care for older people living with frailty.

Eloise has an MSc in Sociology from the London School of Economics and a PhD in Medical Sociology from King’s College London, examining the experiences of older stroke patients and their spouses using individual and joint qualitative interviews taking a biographical narrative approach.

She has been a researcher at King’s College London for over ten years on various studies and evaluations, including studies funded by the National Institute for Health Research and Dimbleby Cancer Care.

She has been a Research Fellow at the University of Southampton since 2018, previously in the School of Health Sciences on a longitudinal qualitative study on people living with cancer and their carers, funded by Macmillan Cancer Support, before moving to her current role in the School of Medicine in 2022.

Eloise has expertise in conducting research and evaluation using qualitative ethnographic methods with a focus on healthcare organisations and workforce, as well as patient and carer experiences.

She has much experience in working with vulnerable groups including palliative care patients, bereaved carers, people with dementia, homeless people with substance misuse issues, older people living with frailty and people with chronic conditions including cancer and stroke. She has extensive experience of Public and Patient Involvement, including patients with cancer and stroke, consulting with PPI stakeholders at each stage of the research and evaluation process.

Eloise’s PhD research has been featured on the BBC Radio 4 programme ‘Thinking Allowed’ presented by Professor Laurie Taylor.
