Tamsin Newlove-Delgado is an NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer in Public Health and an Honorary Consultant in Public Health Medicine with Devon County Council. Having spent time training in child psychiatry before moving into public health, Tamsin’s main area of research interest is in public health aspects of child mental health. She completed her PhD with the Child Mental Health Group in 2016, which was funded by an NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship. Her PhD focussed on two aspects of service provision for children and young people with psychiatric disorders in the UK; mental health related service contact in school aged children and transition from child to adult services in young people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Tamsin is a co-investigator on the Children and adolescents with ADHD in transition between children’s services and adult services (CATCh-uS) study and is particularly interested in the roles and perspectives of GPs regarding managing ADHD in young people in primary care. She has experience in conducting systematic reviews, and has led a Cochrane Systematic Review of dietary interventions in recurrent abdominal pain in children. She is currently leading on a surveillance study of Sydenham's chorea which will be conducted through the British Paediatric Surveillance Unit and the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Surveillance Service, working with colleagues across the UK and Ireland (https://www.rcpch.ac.uk/bpsu-study-sydenhams-chorea). The study is funded by the Paul Polani Prize from the British Academy of Childhood Disability and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.
