Anthony Laverty is a Research Fellow in the Department of Primary Care & Public Health. He joined in November 2009 and was funded by CLAHRC (Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care) for Northwest London to assist in the evaluation of various quality improvement initiatives. He is currently working on a Department of Health funded evaluation of the concessionary bus pass for older people in England. Prior to joining Imperial he completed a BSc in Health Sciences at the University of York and an MSc at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Anthony has a broad interest in the evaluation of public health policies and in health services research. Previously he has worked on the epidemiology of Sickle Cell Disease, the impact of smoke free legislation on childhood asthma admissions and evaluation of a national salt reduction strategy. In addition to the bus pass work, current areas of interest include the effects of public quality reporting on patient utilisation in the English NHS, and the impact of active travel on cardiovascular risk.
