Improving Global Health and Social Care

The UK’s health and social care systems continue to provide high quality care, however it is crucial that we explore the new technologies and ways of working open to us to ensure the standards of care we have come to expect are maintained.

The work we do in support of this ethos is underpinned by a culture of connectedness from the students we educate, to the research we carry out and through to our impact on the wider world. Integral throughout all of this is the involvement of patients and care providers in our work, ensuring it remains relevant to the challenges facing our society.

Taking World Class Research Forward

Drawing on the cutting edge research our ethos of multi-disciplinary, collaborative research is key to bringing in research leaders from across the health care, social care, academic, private and voluntary sectors.  Such a robust approach enables us to take forward high quality research which ultimately benefits patients, users, managers and policy makers.
