Dr Ian Scott is a senior lecturer at Keele University and consultant rheumatologist at the Haywood Hospital.

His clinical and research focus is around improving the health of people living with inflammatory arthritis, with a particular emphasis on improving pain, alongside using electronic health records and digital systems to deliver patient care and research.

Ian was awarded a National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Advanced Research Fellowship in 2020 to deliver a programme of research to improve pain care in people with inflammatory arthritis. As part of this he has conducted various studies using data from the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) and is using text-messages and online systems to deliver several observational studies.

He has also led on the development of a new electronic health record system at his NHS Trust, which incorporates an online “patient portal” collecting electronic patient-reported outcome measures from people with inflammatory arthritis.

Ian is keen to collaborate with others on health data research projects, particularly those that focus on pain or improving the health of people with inflammatory arthritis.
