Joyce Halliday is an Associate Professor (Senior Lecturer) in Social Policy & Sociology. She is currently seconded to a Department of Health funded project exploring the diversity of healthcare providers now offering services to NHS patients.
Joyce read geography at Oxford University (gaining a first-class degree) and was awarded a PhD in Coastal Zone Management from the University of Wales in 1986. She spent 15 years as Devon Research Fellow at the University of Exeter before moving to the University of Plymouth in 2000 to manage the team evaluating the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Health Action Zone. The award of a two-year ESRC Research Fellowship in 2003 allowed her to consolidate her publication record after many years as a contract researcher and in October 2005 she was awarded a five-year RCUK Academic Fellowship in Rural Health. The majority of her time is currently allocated to a Department of Health funded project exploring the diversity of providers offering services to NHS patients where she is Project Manager and main fieldworker.
