Miss Candice Downey


I obtained my MBChB from the University of Leeds in 2011, having undertaken a BSc in Physiology at King's College London in 2009.

Since graduation, I have been an integrated academic trainee, having undertaken an Academic Foundation Programme and an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowship in General Surgery. I am currently undertaking an NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship. 

Research interests

My PhD involves continuous remote vital signs monitoring for hospital patients using a wearable, wireless patch.  In addition to two clinical trials, the Fellowship includes a significant qualitative component to assess patients’ and nurses’ experiences of the new technology.
