Dear Rachel and Jo,
I'm based in Aston and live just outside Solihull (very near Cov).
My research is on medication management and currently we have a realist project funded by the NIHR - https://systematicreviewsjournal.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s13643-017-0528-1
I am keen to develop local collaborations with other researchers in the area.
Rachel - we also have strong links with Birmingham Children's Hospital.
Jo/Rachel - happy to continue this conversation "off-line".
Dr Ian Maidment,
Senior Lecturer, Pharmacy, Lead Course Tutor, Postgraduate Psychiatric Pharmacy Programme, School of Life and Health Sciences, ARCHA, Medicines and Devices in Ageing Cluster Lead, Aston University

I’m the opposite to you... live in Warwickshire (not too far from Cov) and study in Nottingham! We have a realist group at Nottingham uni based in medical school. We meet every 6-8 weeks and provide peer support for our various projects. Is this the kind of thing you’re looking for? There’s a lot doing reviews but a few like me are doing evaluations too.
Send me a message if this is the kind of thing you’re interested in.
