Dr Gary Abel - Health Services Statistician
Gary started working for the Health Services Research Group in October 2010 as a research associate statistician.

The main focus of his work is analysing data from the General Practice Patient Survey, but he also works on other topics including the early diagnosis of cancer. Statistical methods he is employing include multivariate and mixed effect modelling.
