Paddy Hopkins

qualifications: MPH

position: Honorary research fellow

United Kingdom

I have worked for the NHS for over 20 years and have extensive knowledge of NHS information and data. Since moving to the Highlands in 1997, a remote and rural area, I have been working closely with colleagues in Public Health, and the Centre for Rural Health. I have a Masters in Public Health from Glasgow University and my research interests are in demography, suicide and deliberate self harm, the underpinning socio-economic factors of health and wellbeing, reducing health inequalities, and assessing the rural impact upon health and well being. I am also pursuing voluntary registration as a Specialist in Public Health.
