Sian Newton, MSc
PCTU Quality Assurance Lead
Having achieved an assortment of degrees in Forensic Science, Osteoarchaeology and Epidemiology, I spent 3 years working on public health studies before moving to Queen Mary University of London. Here I spent 5 years coordinating and managing feasibility and large-scale randomised trials in women’s health and pain management.
At the Pragmatic Clinical Trials Unit I developed as Senior Trials Manager providing trial management support for a portfolio of trials and programmes for two years, in areas including mental health and primary care.
Complex interventions in the NHS and the management of trials.
