Cllr Muriel Green
North Tyneside Council
Co-opted governor from North Tyneside Council
Chris is a clinical researcher at Newcastle University working with national and international academic and industry collaborators to evaluate and implement interventions which improve patient access to emergency stroke treatments.
He is chief investigator for single and multi-site phase II and III clinical trials, including multi-region ambulance trials funded by the National Institute for Health Research, Medical Research Council and Innovate UK to examine the clinical and cost-effectiveness of new paramedic assessment processes and portable diagnostics for suspected stroke.
In 2017 Chris was awarded The Stroke Association HRH Princess Margaret Senior Reader Fellowship in recognition of his ambition to improve emergency access to time-critical treatments for patients with suspected stroke.
Chris’ interest in the application of new technology to enhance patient outcomes goes beyond the acute phase of stroke treatment, including wristband accelerometry to encourage upper limb activity and collect recovery biomarker data. He has also been lead investigator for health services research awards to observe and predict the impact of clinical service reconfigurations for both stroke and mixed patient populations seeking emergency medical assistance.
