Research project(s)

ARTIC PC

We are looking to investigate the usefulness of antibiotics in this age group, it follows a European wide trial that was very similar for adults. Children will be provided antibiotic or placebo and keep a symptom diary for up to 28 days. They can opt to provide a throat swab, a blood sample and have a chest x-ray.

The Hampshire Acute Kidney Injury Study

REDUCE (REviewing long term anti-Depressant Use by Careful monitoring in Everyday practice)

There is considerable concern about increasing antidepressant use in England. GPs are giving out more than 50 million prescriptions a year, to more than 1 in 10 adults.

DIPSS

The DIPSS (Integrating Digital Interventions into Patient Self-Management Support) project has received funding of £2 million from the NIHR to examine patient digital self-management with healthcare professional support in primary care. Our aim is to develop digital behaviour change interventions for asthma and hypertension self-management, which will be examined in feasibility studies and full RCT (hypertension only). Issues surrounding the feasibility, acceptability, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of digital intervention delivery will be explored with patients and healthcare professionals for each condition.

Lily is the head of the Health Economics Analyses Team, the chief health economics adviser for the NIHR RDS South Central, and the health economics module lead for two key postgraduate degree programmes: the Masters in Public Health and the Masters in Genomics. She also teaches on the health economics modules for the Bachelor of Medicine (BM) degree programme.
