Jo works in the policy team where she leads research and analysis projects on contemporary English health policy. She is particularly interested in staff, patient and carer experiences of care. Her recent projects include work on staff and patient experiences of community health services, ways of thinking about rationing in the health service, and changes to accountability arrangements in the NHS following the Lansley reforms.
Jo is also a coach and has worked with clinicians, managers and patient leaders in health care.
Before joining the Fund in 2006, she worked as a social affairs analyst for BBC News. She has degrees in social and political sciences from King’s College Cambridge, the LSE and the University of Edinburgh. Her first book, Producing health policy: knowledge and knowing in government policy work, was published in 2016 and draws on ethnographic research conducted inside England’s Department of Health.
Jo is on maternity leave until late spring 2017.
