Dr Miriam Santer is Associate Professor in Primary Care Research within Medicine at the University of Southampton and a GP at Denmark Road Medical Centre in Bournemouth.

GPs deal with a wide range of problems but often face gaps in the evidence-base on how to manage these. I aim to address some of these gaps

As a GP and clinical academic, Dr Santer leads research with a particular focus on skin conditions. While her main focus is primary care, she also aims to carry out research that reaches across primary and secondary care. She is interested in developing evidence to inform management of conditions including eczema, acne, skin infections, gout and the management of acute respiratory illnesses. She is particularly interested in developing support for self management for both acute illnesses and long term conditions.

Dr Santer previously completed a NIHR post-doctoral fellowship on exploring families’ experiences of caring for childhood eczema and developing self-management resources to support them in this. She was previously a MRC Health Services Research Fellow at the University of Edinburgh, where she completed her PhD using mixed qualitative and quantitative methods to look at why women consult their GP for heavy menstrual bleeding. Her research methods include qualitative and quantitative research and pragmatic trials in primary care.
