Dr Maddy French

Lecturer in Palliative Care

Research Overview

I'm a mixed methods researcher with an interest in equity and using routine data in palliative and end-of-life care research. My PhD explored the relationship between social deprivation and access to hospice services in North West England. I'm currently involved in research projects looking at the impact of COVID-19 on a socially deprived coastal town, and 'deathbed etiquette' for those at the bedside of a loved one who is dying.
