After studying Biomedical Sciences, Tim completed an MSc in Biomedical Engineering at Newcastle University in 2016. In 2017, Tim was accepted onto the Scientist Training Programme in Clinical Engineering, where he worked in Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board in North Wales as part of the Posture and Mobility Service. Tim’s interest in process pathways and computational modelling led him to undertake a project in modelling Custom Seating Provision in the Posture and Mobility Service in order to improve wheelchair delivery times, and the patient experience.
Tim joined Newcastle Hospitals in April 2020 and became a registered clinical scientist in October 2020. He works within Northern Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering to apply his knowledge in mechanical, electrical and software engineering to the development of medical devices. Tim’s biomedical engineering and modelling background also provides a valuable perspective for his work within the MIC where he is undertaking care pathway analysis to inform the implementation of new diagnostic tests.
