Dr Erica Cook

Senior Lecturer in Health Psychology

Erica Cook

I am a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) a Registered Health Psychologist with the UK Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) with interests in health psychology and public health.

I completed my first degree, BSc Health Psychology with first class honours in 2008 at the University of Bedfordshire and in 2009 went on to complete an MSc in Health Psychology. In 2009 I successfully secured a PhD stipend studentship, jointly funded by NHS Direct and the University of Bedfordshire which examined the demographic and psycho-social factors which impact the uptake of telephone-based health care. Following the successful completion of my PhD in 2012, I secured my first lectureship at the School of Psychology, promoted in 2013 to Senior lecturer in Health Psychology. In 2015 I went on to complete the BPS Stage 2 Qualification in Health Psychology (independent route) which enabled me to register as a practitioner Health Psychologist (HCPC).

I am the course director for the BPS accredited Stage 1 MSc Health Psychology Programme, Professional Practice Year (PPY) coordinator for Psychology and contribute widely to the coordination and teaching across the MSc Health Psychology and BSc Psychology programmes. I have co-authored two undergraduate texts ‘Health Psychology: The Basics’ and ‘Psychology Express: Health Psychology’, both of which underpin my knowledge and expertise within the discipline of Health Psychology.

I am also a Research Design Advisor for the NIHR Public Health Research Applications and Design Advice (PHRADA) and Research Design Service RDS (East of England) where I advise academic staff, healthcare professionals and local authorities on submitting grants applications to NIHR and other health-based funding streams.

My research interdisciplinary in nature is focused on the intersection of public health and Health Psychology with a commitment to improving health outcomes for marginalised and socially disadvantaged communities through the planning and delivery of improved, more accessible, and responsive healthcare services.

My research has resulted in numerous collaborations with external agencies including voluntary and charity sector organisations, local authorities, NHS Trusts, clinical commissioning groups and academics. Much of my research has focused on evaluating access and engagement of health services to identify barriers to uptake and adoption particularly among the most vulnerable in society including the elderly, ethnically diverse and lower socioeconomic groups which has facilitated an understanding of improved models of delivery.

I also have a particular interest in community engagement and the co-development of solutions to improve access and utilisation of health promotion services and reduce health inequalities across marginalised and disadvantaged communities.
