Trish is co-investigator on a study based at University College London (UCL) and in collaboration with HYMS. The study is funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research (YCR) and led by Dr Lesley McGregor at UCL. This RCT will research into ways of enhancing the uptake of Bowel Scope Screening in Hull and surrounding areas.


Trish is lead researcher on the following projects funded by the Department of Health Policy Research Unit in Cancer Awareness, Screening and Early Diagnosis (CASE).


GPs and cancer recognition and referral in England: an in-depth study


The overall purpose of this study was to understand cancer diagnosis from the perspective of GPs, and to develop a framework for conceptualising the potential of the GP role to improve cancer recognition and referral. This study has ended. A SEDA Research Summary is available, several conference papers have been presented (see External Activities list) and the results have been published in peer-reviewed journals (see Publications list).


Clinical decision support for cancer diagnosis: qualitative evaluation


The purpose of this study was to examine GPs’ perceptions on the acceptability and usability of the e-RAT and Q-Cancer decision support tools; to identify facilitators and barriers to their use; and to obtain a patient perspective on the use of the tools. This study has ended. The final report, written in collaboration with Dr Jodie Moffat and Lucy Ironmonger, is available on the CRUK website. A SEDA Research Summary is also available (see Publications list).


Exploring women’s views on the appropriateness of including information leaflets about ovarian cancer with ‘all-clear’ breast and cervical screening results


The aim of this study is to explore lay and professional perceptions of the inclusion of information leaflets about cancer symptoms with all-clear results of cervical and/or breast screening. The policy question the study aims to answer is: In what ways can all-clear cancer screening results be utilised to help raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of other cancers?


The use of GP waiting rooms to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of cancer


This study starts in March 2018. The overall aim is to understand if/how GP waiting rooms are used to present information about cancer, especially related to cancer screening and signs and symptoms of cancer. 


Trish is Principal Investigator on a study entitled Factors Influencing Smoking in Hull: A study of women smokers and non-smokers (FISH).


The study is jointly funded by Hull CCG and Hull City Council. The overall aim is to understand the reasons why so many women in Hull take up smoking. It will examine women’s access to and their perceptions of smoking cessation services.


Trish is Co-Investigator on an ESRC funded Research Seminar series entitled On encountering corpses: political, socio-economic and cultural aspects of contemporary encounters with dead bodiesLed by Dr Craig Young, Manchester Metropolitan University and in collaboration with leading scholars from the universities of York, Durham, Bath and Central Lancashire.
