Dr Katie Gallacher

  • Senior Clinical Research Fellow (General Practice & Primary Care)
  • Associate (Institute of Cardiovascular & Medical Sciences)

Biography

Dr Katie Gallacher joined General Practice and Primary Care in 2009 as an Academic Fellow. She graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2004, after completing an intercalated BSc (MedSci) in developmental medicine in 2002. She completed her GP training in the south of Glasgow in 2008 and now works as a salaried GP in Grantley Medical Practice in Shawlands.

Dr Gallacher completed her PhD entitled An exploration of treatment burden and patient capacity in people with stroke in 2016 and has recently been awarded a Stroke Association Clinical Lectureship Award. She has a special interest in research that explores the workload of self-management for people with stroke and in the development and testing of interventions that minimize this workload and maximize capacity to manage health problems.

She represents the Royal College of General Practitioners on the National Advisory Committee for Stroke, the UKSF Conference Programme Committee and the UKSF Steering Group.
