About the Studentship

This studentship is an exciting new collaboration between Somerset County Council and  the Centre for Public Health and Wellbeing at UWE, Bristol. The project will explore the potential of routine data sets held by the council to enable long-term evaluations of interventions at the population level, using the new enhanced parenting pathway as a case study. Over the course of the 3-year studentship, the student will carry out an initial evaluation of the pathway, and set up the data systems for longer term follow up of a wide range of relevant outcomes using data held by the Council and other partners.

Expected steps to achieving this aim include:

  • Reviewing the standard methods of evaluating such a service
  • Identifying relevant outcomes (short, medium and long term)
  • Scoping relevant data sets (internal and external to the council) to measure these outcomes
  • Identifying barriers to using these data sets (e.g. consent, data sharing, data quality, data matching)
  • Overcoming these barriers, where possible within the PhD timescales, and making recommendations regarding outstanding barriers to help Somerset Council become a ‘research-ready’ council
  • Using available data for a short-term evaluation of the pathway, with a particular focus on inequalities with respect to both Covid and rural deprivation
