Jonathan has spent sixteen years working in design in healthcare and leads the Healthcare Research Space at the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design at the Royal College of Art.

Jonathan's research interests include design for patient safety and inclusive design. His work on a new resuscitation trolley for the National Patient Safety Agency won two Medical Futures Innovation Awards and completed successful clinical trials prior to manufacture. He has shaped high profile projects such as Design Bugs Out and Design for Patient Dignity with the Department of Health and Design Council, as well as supervising projects with partners ranging from ArjoHuntleigh to the Medical Defence Union. He was Design Lead on the EPSRC-funded project, ‘Designing Out Medical Error’. This three-year multidisciplinary project in collaboration with Imperial College, London, looked at the role design can play in reducing medical error on hospital wards. This award-winning project pioneered methods of collaboration and has resulted in a suite of designs for the hospital ward and paved the way for the HELIX Centre, where Jonathan was seconded.  His work has been published internationally in journals, books and as papers.
