Dr Lizzie Cottrell is a General Practitioner Partner and an NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer in Primary Care. Her Ph.D. focussed on the attitudes and beliefs of GPs regarding clinical knee osteoarthritis. She has now taken this work forward into her post-doctoral research, in which her focus is primary care management of musculoskeletal problems such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Lizzie has an interest in the delivery of services, both in terms of understanding healthcare professionals’ behaviours, identifying effective service models and evaluating service delivery. Combining her academic and clinical expertise, she is now a member of the implementation team at Keele University, this provides Lizzie with the platform to bridge the gap between research evidence and real world clinical practice.
