Dr Gemma Hutton

Postdoctoral Research Fellow



I am a postdoctoral research fellow working within an interdisciplinary service evaluation to examine ways of increasing participation in the NHS Breast Screening Programme in England. I have a background in health psychology research and have previously worked on a number of quantitative and qualitative projects exploring various aspects of recovery and treatment decision making in cancer and myocardial infarction patients.


Research Interests:

My research interests include cancer screening behaviour, treatment decision making and the role of social support in prevention and recovery from illness.
