I am a GP in Berkshire completing an MSc in Evidence Based Medicine at the University of Oxford. This is building on my work as an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow where I will be looking at the evidence base for cancer screening promotion in faith-based settings.

Many minority communities in the UK, especially those from the Muslim communities, have poor cancer outcomes; in part due to poor uptake of cancer screening and late detection of the disease.

My research aims to explore the evidence around faith as an effective means of engaging with cancer screening. From this I am hoping to inform policy around improving cancer screening and diagnosis by demonstrating the value of co-production with faith communities, and hopefully help save a few more lives in the process.
