Jenni joined the YQSR Group as a Programme Manager in December 2016 to work on the NIHR funded programme of work ‘Partners At Care Transitions (PACT): Improving Patient Experience and Safety at Transitions of Care’. Jenni is responsible for co-ordinating the timely delivery of each of the six work packages within the programme and ensuring that opportunities for outputs are maximised.
Jenni has an applied science degree and an MSc in Biotechnology. Her PhD obtained from the University of Leeds in 2008 related to longer-term care following a stroke. Jenni brings with her a long history of research experience across a breath of applied health and social care areas including antenatal and neonatal screening, stroke and cardiovascular care and offender health within third sector green spaces and has published widely in these areas.
She has a particular interest in the development and process evaluations of complex interventions and is a fan of the use of green spaces (such as social farms) as interventions to improve emotional and social wellbeing. Jenni enjoys the variety and the challenges that project management brings but also the continued opportunities to contribute intellectually to health service research and development.
