Jason's research interests are in applied health and social care research, with a particular focus on quality of care including patient safety and access to care. This often encompasses issues related to integrated person-centred care as people cross organisational boundaries in the health and social care system. He has completed or is involved in a number of research projects to develop and evaluate healthcare, social care and community interventions. He is the national academic lead for the Frequent Caller National Network (FreCaNN), where he helps to inform ambulance service policy and practice in relation to frequent callers across the UK. He is also the Deputy Lead for the Multimorbidity, Ageing and Frailty theme of the North East and North Cumbria Applied Research Collaboration.
