Investigating improvements for healthcare systems and processes

Our Patient-Centred Health Services research group focuses on ways to put theory into practice to provide better patient outcomes. We also foster early and mid-career researchers to nurture the next generation of health and social care  experts, and to boost our research capacity .

Our research is theoretically driven, multidisciplinary and focuses on cost-effective health and social care interventions and the translation of these interventions into policy and practice. We undertake committed scientific research with an emphasis on improving patient care, experiences and outcomes, and use knowledge-translation approaches.
