I have over 30 years experience in health economics and public health teaching, research and evaluation in the academic sector and in the health service in England and Scotland. I worked as a health economist in health authorities in northern England and health boards in Scotland. I was coordinator of the Master in Public Health in the Department of Public Health in the University of Glasgow for 8 years before moving to Audit Scotland to work as a Project Manager in the Health and Community Care Performance Audit team. For the last 10 years I have worked in the Evaluation Team in NHS Health Scotland and latterly Public Health Scotland. I have sat on groups advising Scottish Government, including the reference groups for the Long-Term Monitoring of Health Inequalities and the National Review of Resource Allocation for the NHS in Scotland, and provided evidence to Audit and Health Committees of the Scottish Parliament. I am currently head of the Evaluation Team in Public Health Scotland: current and recent areas of work include evaluation of Minimum Unit Pricing for Scottish Government, evaluation of the extension of early learning and childcare, a feasibility study of a possible pilot of a Citizen’s Basis Income and an evaluation of Covid vaccination.
