Monsey McLeod is Honorary Research Fellow at the NIHR Health Protection Research Unit in Healthcare Associated Infection and Antimicrobial Resistance at Imperial College, and at the NIHR Imperial Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (PSTRC). She is also affiliated with the Centre for Medication Safety and Service Quality, led by Bryony Dean Franklin.

As Lead Pharmacist for Medication Safety and Anti-infectives Research at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (ICHT) and a HEE Topol Digital Health Fellow.  Her role combines research, clinical, and education at ICHT to facilitate two-way translation between research and practice.  She has been doing research since her MSc in 2008, and completed her PhD on human and system-based variation on medication safety at the UCL School of Pharmacy in 2013.

Her research interests include: patient safety, medication safety, antimicrobial stewardship, behavioural science, implementation science, electronic prescribing, health informatics, digital health, person-centred design, and human factors.

She is currently leading a digital transformation project at ICHT to develop enhanced health informatics that facilitates learning from prescribing errors in the context of electronic prescribing. She is also a workstream lead for a 4-year ESRC-funded collaborative research programme (STEP-UP) that aims to improve the uptake and sustainability of effective interventions to promote prudent antibiotic use in primary care.  She is a former member of the London-Fulham NHS Research Ethics Committee.
