It is estimate that the average general physician saves 4.7 lives per year; a medical writer can potentially save many more.
We have been involved in developing and delivering diverse clinical research projects. Partners have included Imperial College London, Warwick University and the charities, Marie Curie and Hospice UK.
Our current focus is to deliver a major qualitative and quantitative study on behalf of NHS England. This seeks to identify innovations at the end of life which reduce unnecessary and inappropriate hospitalization and to better understand the barriers/promotors for success. As part of the study methodology, a team of researchers travelling some 5,600 miles to multiple centres across England interviewing over 180 staff, patients and carers.
Another interesting project we are involved in is a national project which seeks to evaluate aspects of undergraduate medical education. This has resulted in several much-cited publications.
