Lead clinical research therapist
Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust & NIHR North East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire Comprehensive Local Research Network (CLRN)
Angela Green is lead clinical research therapist at the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. She is responsible for co-ordinating research and clinical governance activities for therapy services (physiotherapy, occupational therapy, dietetic, speech and language therapy, orthotic and prosthetic services) within her Trust. She works with therapy staff to ensure that services are effective, efficient and of the highest possible quality. This is achieved through monitoring patient safety, patient and staff experience and auditing modes of service delivery, process and clinical outcomes against evidence based standards and guidelines. She qualified as a physiotherapist, and maintains her clinical skills by running a well-being clinic for people with cancer-related fatigue. She completed a PhD at the University of Hull in 2008. Angela is also seconded part time to the National Institute for Health Research North and East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire comprehensive local research network to encourage allied health professionals to engage in portfolio research projects and to build AHPresearch capacity within the NHS. This role has enabled her to develop a number of links with AHPs, both in the Yorkshire region and nationally.
Angela will spend her time as a NICE Fellow focussing on improving alignment of local rehabilitation pathways with best available evidence. This is to be achieved through work with local commissioners, health and social care agencies, leisure providers and the voluntary sector. Angela is also keen to develop her AHP networks and to liaise with other AHPs involved in NICE activities in order to develop a co-ordinated approach to raising awareness of NICE consultations, NICE quality standards, pathways and implementation tools. She also views her fellowship as an opportunity to act as a conduit between AHPs, NICE and the NIHR to identify gaps in evidence or guidance and to highlight new and innovative ways of working.
