Darci Tillbrook


I am a PhD student based between the School of Healthcare and the Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (PSTRC) at Bradford Institute for Health Research. My research concerns the quality and safety of  breast cancer care during the COVID-19 pandemic, with a focus on patient and family involvement, and is funded by NIHR Yorkshire and Humber.

I also have a particular interest in promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in research. I am currently a member of the Equality, Diversity, Inclusion, and Patient Safety Interest Group based at the PSTRC.
