Jenni Burt is a Senior Research Associate within the Health Services Research Group. She has a degree in Biological Anthropology from Cambridge University, an MSc in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), and a PhD in Epidemiology and Public Health from UCL. Prior to joining the Unit in 2010, Jenni held an MRC Special Training Fellowship in Health Services Research at UCL, and has also held previous research positions at LSHTM and King’s College London.
Jenni’s main research interests relate to the quality of primary care, with a particular focus on patient evaluations of healthcare, doctor-patient communication, vulnerable populations and inequalities in health care, and long term conditions. She recently managed a five year NIHR funded programme of research on the impact and utility of patient experience measures in primary care, the “Improve” programme. More recent work looks at prescribing in primary care, most notably as co-PI on a trial of deprescribing antihypertensives in older patients. She has a particular interest in the development and application of rigorous qualitative and mixed methods approaches, and in innovative approaches to disseminating research findings.
