Dr Julie Hedayioglu

Research Associate

Medway School of Pharmacy


I am a BPS Chartered Psychologist and Health Psychologist (HCPC Registered), with a background in the adaptation and management of chronic conditions, treatment choices, and health interventions.

My role within the Medway School of Pharmacy is to run and deliver the KeMiST project with Dr Sarah Corlett. The project aims to identify the needs and preferences of stroke and TIA survivors for medicines support at all points post stroke/TIA. This will be used to inform the design of a patient-centred pharmacy-led service. The service will integrate into stroke care pathways and will be accessible by health care professionals (HCPs) supporting patients in community settings, and through patient/carer self-referral.

Other Roles

In addition, I work one day a week as the Research Facilitator for Kent Community NHS Foundation Trust (KCHFT): http://www.kentcht.nhs.uk/ helping to develop a research culture and supporting clinicians to develop their research ideas.


I completed my BSc (Hons) Psychology at University of Greenwich in 2003, and then went on to gain an MSc in Health Psychology at the University of Kent in 2004 (also Stage 1 for Chartership in Health Psychology). Following on from My MSc, I continued at the University of Kent and in 2011 was awarded a PhD in Health Psychology. During my PhD, I also undertook and passed the BPS independent route for health psychology training (Stage 2) qualifying as a Health Psychologist.

As an experienced health researcher, I have used both qualitative and quantitative approaches, across a number of topic areas, such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine (University of Kent) and mental health nursing (City University). I have significant experience of working with, and for, the NHS. This includes a previous role as a Clinical Trials Officer in stroke (EKHUFT), and as the Research and Innovation Officer for KentHealth (University of Kent).
