Dr Graham McClelland

Assistant Professor

Department: Nursing, Midwifery & Health

I am a paramedic by background and worked for North East Ambulance Service for 20 years (Advanced Technician, Paramedic, HART Paramedic, Research Paramedic, Paramedic Research Fellow) before joining Northumbria University. I have been involved in clinical research since 2011 and would describe myself as a pragmatic mixed methods researcher.

Graham McClelland

My research interests include prehospital and emergency care of stroke as well as prehospital care of other time critical conditions. More broadly I am interested in anything involving paramedics or ambulance services.
