Dr Jenni Burt - Research Associate
Jenni Burt is a Research Associate within the Health Services Research Group led by Professor Martin Roland. She has a degree in Biological Anthropology from Cambridge University, an MSc in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), and a PhD in Epidemiology and Public Health from UCL. Prior to joining the Unit in February 2010, Jenni was a member of the UCL Health Care Evaluation Group, supported by an MRC Special Training Fellowship in Health Services Research. Jenni has held previous research positions at LSHTM and King's College London.
Jenni’s main research interests are in the determinants of health care use, patient experience of health care, and the development and application of mixed methods. During her MRC Fellowship, Jenni investigated equity of use of specialist palliative care services in relation to age. She is currently project managing the “Improve” NIHR programme grant, investigating how data on patient experience of general practice can be used to improve quality of care. She is also involved in evaluating care planning in the treatment of long term conditions.
