Professor Sue Mawson


Professor Sue Mawson led, in 2008, the successful South Yorkshire application to become a National Institute of Health Research Collaboration for Leadership in applied Research and Care (CLAHRC). This multi-disciplinary research community was driven by both the needs of people with long term conditions and the need to address health inequalities across South Yorkshire Communities.

In July 2013 she led the successful application for The NIHR CLAHRC for Yorkshire and Humber for 2014-2018. This new collaboration is building on the success of the pilots from South Yorkshire and Leeds, Bradford and York. CLAHRC YJ's focus will be on the self-management of complex long-term conditions, the research will be shaped in partnership with stakeholders - from hospital managers to carers and patients.

As a Professor of Health Services research her work focuses on improving the quality of life of people with long-term conditions, capitalising on new innovations in sensor digital technologies. This interdisciplinary work, has integrated clinical researchers with engineers, designers, and digital media specialists. This has led to close links with industry and a number of publications in the field of telehealth.
