Dr Janine Hawkins

Janine has recently joined the Research Design Service East of England as a Research Adviser, having graduated in 2016 with an MSc in Psychology.  Janine’s final project involved a qualitative examination of the process of patient safety incident reporting in the NHS, building on her PhD in Safety Management Systems from Aston University back in 2001.

In the interim, Janine has worked in social and government research, mainly for commercial research organisations, undertaking policy and initiative evaluation research for clients including DWP, HSE, HMRC, BIS and National Audit Office.  Janine has designed, written applications for, and delivered many hundreds of qualitative and quantitative research projects over the years, and has a particular expertise in depth interviewing and thematic analysis, survey methods and questionnaire design.  Her experience in preparing, and assisting with funding applications is extensive and she particularly enjoys this element of her work.

Janine is currently involved in a range of studies and funding applications at UH, covering specialisms including nephrology, self-management and patient safety.
