Dr Carole Paley

My role in the NHS is Head of Research and Innovation.

I worked for a few years at Leeds Polytechnic Carnegie School of Physical Education and Human Movement Studies, doing some part-time lecturing and research before taking a Master of Medical Science Degree in Sport and Exercise Medicine at the University of Sheffield.
