We are a leading health economics research centre, with a reputation for delivering applied and methodological work of the highest quality across a broad range of policy-relevant fields including workforce planning, person-centred care, health behaviour and health technology assessment.
Our research has informed health policy in Scotland, the UK and internationally. Our methodological developments ensure our research and policy contributions are underpinned by theoretical rigour. Our capacity building activities have contributed to the training of health economists in academia, the NHS and government.
