Dr Siobhan Reilly

Senior Lecturer

Research Overview

My background is in health services research. My research is primarily concerned with improving the evidence base for the delivery of health and social care services for people with people with dementia and older people with long term conditions and people with severe mental illness. My work includes the policy, practice, organisation and delivery of health and social care services, particularly in relation to the integration and coordination of health and social care services. My work utilises mixed methods approaches. I am currently leading research in 3 areas:

I have conducted Cochrane systematic reviews of complex interventions, notes extraction from primary care and a longitudinal epidemiological primary care database study and have conducted many surveys and evaluations over my research career. Prior to joining the Division of Health Research in September 2013, I worked as a health service researcher in a range of settings since 1993 funded by the Department of Health or the NIHR, including a NIHR School for Primary Care training fellowship (2010-13).

I teach research methods, supervise PhD students and have published in academic journals and with the Cochrane Collaboration. I am an honorary senior research fellow at University of Manchester.
