Professor Riley is a consultant in Palliative Medicine at the Royal Marsden and Royal Brompton NHS Trusts.
She is a senior research fellow and visiting Professor in Palliative Medicine and End of Life Care at Imperial College London; Editor of the European Journal of Palliative Care (the journal for the European Association of Palliative Care), and the Clinical Lead for Coordinate My Care, the clinical service that coordinates and allows patients to have choices and improved quality of end of life care.
Professor Riley has two main research interests. The first is in the inter individual variation in patients’ response to opioids. The second is the development of models of end of life care that include the seamless transition between the acute and the community sector, improve quality of life, decrease in the number of unnecessary hospital admissions and increase the number of patients being cared for, and dying in their preferred place.
