Areas of interest: I am a health services researcher primarily working on alternatives to the face to face consultation in general practice, specifically on the use of email for consultation between GPs and patients. I have a broader interest in eHealth related topics, including the impact of the internet on the GP consultation, the use of digital communication methods in secondary care settings and for self-management and the use of internet-based interventions for e-therapy. Methodological interests include systematic review, development and evaluation of complex interventions using mixed methods and application of internet based interventions.
