Andrew is lead NeuroRehab clinician in the Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust Community Rehabilitation Business Unit. He is an Affiliated Lecturer in the Dept of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge. Recent research funding includes a Post-Doctoral Clinical Academic Research Award from the East of England Strategic Health Authority. In 2014 he is a Health Education East of England Quality Improvement Fellow.

Andrew is a Chartered Physiotherapist. He completed a PhD at the University of Birmingham in 1997 entitled "A Cognitive Neuropsychological Approach to Assessment of Patients with Brain Injury".

Activities at OZC since July 2002 include oversight of business, admissions, assessment and rehabilitation, providing consultation and assessment, expert witness report writing, research and teaching activity and management of NeuroRehab Clinical Teams here at OZC and in Cambridgeshire.

Andrew's main research interest is in the field of outcome measurement. He has recently been exploring the use of Rasch models to help us understand our questionnaires. See the attachments below for some example slides about this topic, where analyses using this approach have been found to helpful in describing the changes seen in response to rehabilitation here at OZC. There are further links on our research pages. Andrew is also keen to advocate the use of single subject experimental designs in the evaluation of rehabilitation and other interventions.

A second strand of research concerns the use of online-learning platforms in neuropsychological rehabilitation.

Andrew is currently available to provide in-service training for your department or to lead workshops on the following topics: single subject experimental designs, dyspraxia, neuropsychology of vision, neuropsychological rehabilitation and outcome research.
