 “I’m delighted to have received this award, and hugely grateful to all those who have worked with and supported me and my team through this journey so far. This senior post represents a landmark moment for academic emergency medicine in Oxford and serves as recognition of the tremendous work of the EMROx team as whole, as well as our large network of collaborators within the Trust, University and Oxford BRC, as well as our industrial, clinical and academic partners across regional, national and international borders.

The acute care sector represents a vast and challenging area of clinical enterprise, and research in this area is rapidly developing and expanding to meet its demands. We aim to establish Oxford as one of the leading centres of emergency medicine research in the UK and worldwide, and this first senior academic appointment is a significant step towards that goal.”
