Bethan Hatherall has worked in a range of research- and public health-related capacities since 2000. She is currently a co-investigator on the NIHR-funded REACH Pregnancy Programme, oversees patient and public involvement across the programme, has lead on a strand of the research programme focussed on strengthening women's involvement in planning and improving maternity services, and is now working on the programme's trial of group-based antenatal care, known as Pregnancy Circles. The REACH Pregnancy Programme has built upon NIHR-funded mixed methods research Bethan conducted on women's access to antenatal care services early in pregnancy, and upon EU-funded qualitative research she conducted on access to and experiences of pregnancy services with a specific focus on women of Bangladeshi, Indian and Pakistani heritage living in East London.
Bethan completed a part-time PhD in 2014 based on multi-country qualitative research she led, funded by ESRC-DFID, on the causes of tuberculosis stigma. She used a combination of the approach to developing grounded theory and a realist perspective on causality to develop explanatory theories. She has presented this research at international conferences, including the 41st Union World Conference on Lung Health.
