Additional advisory roles and outputs:

  • RCB provides technical support for Professor Pell to analyse data in the Glasgow SafeHaven to inform the Health Board’s strategy on COVID-19 ‘shielding’.
  • The RCB team has also created several UK national registries (supported by the British Cardiovascular Society) to capture cardiovascular complications and interventions associated with COVID-19,
  • Dr Pierpaolo Pellicori (Clinical Senior Lecturer) is leading a Cochrane Rapid Review on cardiovascular complications of COVID-19.

Covid19 Advisory Roles


  • Dr Elise Whitley is a member of Public Health Scotland’s Mental Health Cell and currently contributing to priority setting for future work and advising on likely data sources for monitoring.

  • Professor Rich Mitchell and Dr Jonathan Olsen are on Public Health Scotland's Social and System Recovery: Environments and Spaces Group. Rich is leading their Evidence and Data subgroup.
    The group is currently exploring the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for open spaces, parks, streets, public spaces.
  • Ms Ruth Dundas is part of The Scottish COVID-19 Response Consortium (SCRC) - a group of epidemiologists, mathematical modellers, data scientists, software developers and other scientists that have come together to develop new models to help inform the control of COVID-19.
  • One of the key groups identified by RAMP to develop a wider range of pandemic models is the University of Glasgow led Scottish COVID-19 Response Consortium. SPHSU is involved in curating data to support model specification and calibration, and we will be increasingly involved in model design and programming.
  • Dr Vittal Katikireddi is co-chair and Dr Rachel ThomsonDr Theocharis Kromydas and Dr Peter Craig are members of a group convened by Public Health Scotland to advise the Scottish Government and other stakeholders (e.g. CoSLA, Social Security Scotland) on the impacts of the COVID-19 response on health and health inequalities that arise through economic and related pathways, and on actions that may mitigate negative impacts and enhance positive impacts. The group has published a briefing looking at protecting the health of the working-age population as lockdown reduces.
