The team

Tess Lawrie, (MBBCh, PhD)


Tess established EbMCsquared CiC, a non-profit company, in March 2021 in response to the tremendous need for independent and objective health care research and provision, arising out of the Covid-19 health emergency. Since 2013, Tess has run Evidence-based Medicine Consultancy Ltd, which specialises in providing evidence to underpin clinical practice guidelines. Her experience as a clinician and researcher in low, middle and high-income country settings informed her vision for EbMCsquared, promoting good health and wellbeing through the concept of ‘first, do no harm’.
