Dr Charlotte Overton is a Research Fellow working within the ‘safer systems, cultures and practices’ theme of the Yorkshire and Humber Patient Safety Research Collaboration (YH PSRC). Charlotte has a background in using qualitative methods in applied health research. She is also a practicing Registered Adult Nurse.

Charlotte completed a PhD in 2020 with the Centre for Health Innovation, Leadership and Learning (CHILL), Nottingham University Business School, supervised by Professor Justin Waring, Professor Stephen Timmons and Dr Emma Rowley. Charlotte’s PhD (supported by The Health Foundation Studentship) used an ethnographic approach to explore the implementation of a sepsis screening tool and care bundle. Prior to joining the YH PSRC, Charlotte has worked across various applied health research projects and roles at the University of Nottingham and University of Leicester. This has included an evaluation of the Health Services Safety Investigations Body, working as a Researcher-in-Residence at the East Midlands Patient Safety Collaborative and as a Clinical Academic in Patient Safety Implementation at Nottingham University Hospitals.

Research interests

Charlotte has a broad range of research interests, which focusses on improving quality and safety in health and social care using qualitative research methods. These interests include the translation of policy into practice, the involvement of patient, families and staff in patient safety and using robust methods to evaluate the impact of new innovations in practice. Charlotte is also interested in the role embedded research has in translating research findings into practice.
