Letitia Burridge

Dr Burridge is interested in how people experience and make sense of their ill-health, and how they interact with health professionals and services.  This has led to research in the context of chronic long-term conditions and end-of-life care.  Dr Burridge helps coordinate a stream of research to enable people with long-term disability and those who support them to be meaningfully engaged with research that is relevant and seeks to design and deliver care that is person-centred.  She has published over 30 peer-reviewed journal papers, reports and blogs, is a peer-reviewer for international journals, and has helped to develop national resources for supportive care.

Dr Burridge is a Research Fellow within The Hopkins Centre, and brings to the team her skills and experience as a social scientist, including qualitative methods and cross-sectoral multidisciplinary research.
