One of the foremost academic GPs in the UK, Professor Julia Hippisley- Cox has made a name for herself by developing
a family of risk scores to help GPs target treatment interventions.
After the success of the QRISK cardiovascular score – now included in guidelines – Professor Hippisley-Cox has also developed the QKidney, QCancer and QFracture scores. She is also involved in developing a lifetime cardiovascular risk score with the Joint British Societies.
