Dr Austen El-Osta - NIHR Primary Care Research Manager

Dr Austen El-Osta joined the Department in January 2013 to assume the role of NIHR Primary Care Research Manager with NWL CLRN. His principle aim is to widen access and participation in primary care research by engaging constructively with existing and emerging organizational forms during times of great change as the NHS transitions form one state to another. Before joining the CLRN team, Austen worked in a similar capacity in South London, where he engaged with general practices to support recruitment into NIHR-portfolio studies.
