Limited resources coupled with ever increasing demands on health systems mean difficult decisions must be made. Who should be treated? What treatments should be provided? How can we recruit sufficient health workers to ensure all demands can be met? How should we pay our workforce? How can we incentivise individuals to live healthy lives, thus reducing the demands on the health systems? What are the preferences of patients and the public in the delivery of healthcare?
Our research is organised into the four themes shown on the left and below. The themes reflect the areas in which we have an established reputation for excellence and where we can make the most effective contribution to these many questions.
The delivery of research with direct and measurable impacts is central to our research culture. Our Research Impact pages highlight signficant recent impact and achievements.
