John is an Honorary Visiting Fellow in the Department of Public Health and Primary Care at the University of Cambridge, a Senior Clinical Lecturer in Health Equity at Queen Mary University London and an Honorary Public Health Consultant at NHS England. He believes that through our joint efforts we can build fair, inclusive and equitable societies. He works at the interface between research and practice to promote social justice and address health inequalities.
John’s main research interest is interventions and policies that seek to promote health equity and reduce health inequalities. He has range of interests relating to equitable health, including so called “intervention-generated inequalities” in health care settings, local system-level interventions to address inequalities, health care workforce inequalities, national policies and strategies to address inequalities and how primary care can address health and health care inequalities.
