SUE WRIGHT, RESEARCH FACILITATOR
Welcome to Sue Wright, research facilitator
My name is Sue Wright and I joined the CRN West Midlands Primary Care team in January. After an initial research career working for the Department of Transport on the design of traffic signs and symbols I moved into the NHS and worked in health promotion in Kidderminster and Wyre Forest. I then moved back into research but this time health related research. I worked at the Birmingham Dental Hospital, the Medical Research Council Institute of Hearing Research (Nottingham), a primary care study at the University of Warwick, and recently at the University of Birmingham. This was a feasibility study to determine if a full scale RCT could be undertaken on pressure garment therapy for the treatment of burns injuries. In between research contracts I trained in public health and worked in the West Midlands Public Health Observatory and with Public Health England specialising in health impact assessment.
This is a new role for me and I am delighted to be working in the CRN West Midlands and in a warm and supportive team. I am looking forward to working with practices in Worcestershire and Herefordshire and helping to facilitate research in primary care.
