The new SRA North group are pleased to present the fourth in a series of free evening seminars. Beverley Bishop (joint Chief Social Researcher, Health and Safety Executive) will chair an evening of networking, discussion and thought-provoking presentations on the new opportunities presented by the combining or secondary analysis of existing data to test new hypotheses or answer new research questions:


Developing open access indicators of health-related features of neighbourhoods

Mark Green, is a Lecturer in Health Geography at the University of Liverpool. His work focused on the geographical determinants of health, exploring the extent that the places in which individuals live and work in may impact on their health and health-related behaviours. Examples of this work include: understanding how the accessibility to food outlets influences dietary behaviours, developing metrics around how ‘healthy’ Great Britain neighbourhoods are, and analysing trends in mortality rates across the Great Britain.

The state of care in General Practice: Qualitative findings from CQC

Jess Smith is an Analyst Team Leader at the Care Quality Commission (CQC), England’s health and social care regulator. Her work primarily focuses on exploring the value of secondary qualitative data as a source of insight into the quality of care within the GP and Acute sectors. Jess’s team also provides qualitative research and analysis in support of CQC’s national, external reports; this includes last year’s report ‘The state of care in general practice 2014-2017’.

Application of predictive analytic techniques on routine datasets to support the targeting of regulatory inspection activities

Steven Naylor is a Senior Data Scientist at the Health and Safety Laboratory, the scientific arm of the Health and Safety Executive working in the Data Analytics Team.  Steve leads on  the application of machine learning based statistical techniques to predict the likelihood of regulatory non-compliant behaviours, the insights from which are being used to help UK government regulators better target their risk-based inspection activities.

Drinks and light refreshments will be available.
