Epidemiologist, Unit of Health Care Epidemiology

Raph Goldacre is an Epidemiologist at the Unit of Health-Care Epidemiology in the Big Data Institute, working with record-linked routine health data to examine patterns in cause-specific hospitalisation and mortality in England. 

Supported by Public Health England, the Oxford NIHR Biomedical Research Centre, and Health Data Research, Raph's research collaborations include studies of long-term time trends in hospitalisation and mortality/case-fatality (distinguishing epidemiological burden of disease, healthcare burden of disease and artefact caused by e.g. changes in data collection methods), in relation to acute and chronic non-communicable diseases, childhood infections, common surgical procedures, clinical and public health interventions, and shifts in healthcare delivery. Other research collaborations include record-linkage studies of disease-disease associations and multimorbidity; studies of variation in mortality/morbidity by geographic region, reported ethnicity, and area-level deprivation; and studies of record-linked parent-child data to investigate associations between perinatal factors and maternal/paediatric disease.

Raph holds an MSc in Epidemiology from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, has published over 40 peer-reviewed papers, and teaches on the NDPH MSc course in Global Health Science & Epidemiology and the BDI course in Hospital Episode Statistics.
