Lisa Peto is a Public Health Specialty Registrar based in the Oxford Deanery. She is currently working at Solutions for Public Health on an evidence review on osteoporosis screening for the National Screening Committee and a needs assessment and service specification for forensic children and adolescent mental health services for the Department of Health. She has also had placements at West Berkshire PCT, Bristol PCT and the Avon Health Protection Unit. Prior to joining the Public Health Training Scheme, she worked as a Research Reviewer and Analyst at the West Midlands Health Technology Assessment Collaboration Centre.
As a NICE scholar, Lisa will be conducting an audit on the implementation of the NICE guidance on promoting physical activity for children and young people across Oxfordshire. Oxfordshire is considered to have low levels of physical activity in children and young people and it is hoped the audit will help to determine reasons for this, as well as determining whether any gaps and variations in practice and provision of promoting physical activity exist, particularly between affluent and deprived areas in Oxfordshire. The project will also investigate any barriers local authorities and schools face in implementing NICE guidance.
