Jessica Smith


I was awarded a Fellowship by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust in 2018. At the time I completed this project, I was working for the Care Quality Commission (CQC): England’s regulator for health and social care services. At CQC, I led qualitative research and analysis projects relating to the GP and Acute sectors. It was working on CQC’s 'The state of care in general practice 2014 - 2017' report that sparked my interest in the role of general practice in meeting the needs of patients whose circumstances might make them vulnerable. From April 2019, I will be continuing my career in health-related research as Principal for Population Health at Greater Manchester Combined Authority.
