Gochi is an applied health researcher who joined the team in April 2023 and is the Senior Research Fellow on the Rethinking Safety Intelligence theme. This is one of four themes in the NIHR-funded Yorkshire & Humber Patient Safety Research Collaboration. The Rethinking Safety Intelligence theme will explore new safety intelligence solutions to support patient safety improvement across the healthcare system.    

Gochi has a BSc in Medical Studies (University of London), an MSc in Public Health and Epidemiology (University of Birmingham) and is finishing up her PhD at Hull York Medical School. Her PhD project was part of a wider evaluation of a newly-established integrated care clinic for people with moderate to severe frailty. The Proactive Anticipatory Care Evaluation study (PACE) was a community-based non-randomized controlled trial with 3 PhD sub studies. Gochi’s PhD project was a mixed methods study which aimed to describe the assessment and management of unintentional weight loss associated with cachexia in primary care settings.
