Clinical effectiveness & research

PRECISE Study – Nov 14 – I was the Principal investigator for Bolton NHS Foundation Trust for this noninterventional study protocol PGL 11-020. This study is a multicentre retrospective drug utilisation chart review study reviewing Esmya® (Ulipristil) prescription patterns in Europe.

Our team won the Runner Up award in the ‘Research Team of the Year’ category in the Greater Manchester Clinical Research Awards 2013 for this study.
