Health Services Research Unit
The Health Services Research Unit (HSRU) has a national remit to research the best ways to provide health care, and to build capacity in health services research. The Unit is funded by the Chief Scientist Office (CSO) of the Scottish Government Health and Social Care Directorates, the University of Aberdeen and competitive grant income.
Most research projects aim to find out whether developments within the health service really are effective, efficient and appropriate.
