My research started with an MD on the health and health care of Traveller Gypsies. This was followed by studies on the development and implementation of clinical guidelines, the management of chronic respiratory and cardiovascular conditions in primary care and the health impact of domestic violence. My current research programmes focus on the diagnosis and management of stable heart disease and health care responses to domestic violence. My main methodological expertise is in randomised controlled trials and systematic reviews. I collaborate with epidemiologists and social scientists on cohort and qualitative studies respectively.


I trained at Guy's Hospital medical school, qualifying in 1982. This followed a BSc in Biology and Philosophy from the University of Sussex. I trained as a GP and was a principal in Hackney, east London for 21 years until I moved to Bristol in 2007. I held the chair of primary care resaerch and development at Barts and the London (QMUL) until 2008. I have chaired three NICE clinical guidelines and sat on the 2010 Department of Health task-force on responding to violence against women and children (chairing the domestic violence subgroup). I currently chair the WHO intimate partner violence guideline development group and the NICE domestic violence programme development group.


Cardiovascular health - in particular the diagnosis and management of angina and using cardiovascular risk as a basis of treatment decisions. I am particularly concerned about inequitable care. I have conducted trials, cohort and qualitative studies in this area and chaired the NICE post-MI guidelines group Domestic violence - in particular the response of health care professionals to survivors of partner abuse. I have conducted systematic reviews and trials in this area and have written international guidelines for primary care. Clinical guidelines and quality of health care - in particular the validity of guidelines and their implementation in primary care. I have chaired three UK national guideline groups.
