Hayley Gorton

Institution: University of Huddersfield, UK.

Position: Senior Lecturer in Pharmacy Practice, Pharmacist.

Current research: I study trends and associations in suicide and self-harm using large health care datasets, which contain thousands of anonymised patient records. My PhD explored the risk of self-harm and suicide in people with epilepsy, and the role of antiepileptic drugs.

Research interests: In addition to the themes discussed above, I have a keen interest in developing the understanding and role of pharmacy teams in suicide and self-harm prevention.
