Investigating health care standards in relation to population Investigating health care standards in relation to population

Our health services research investigates the effectiveness, efficiency, equity and acceptability of health care. We emphasise research on health care that affects the health of populations, especially through primary care.

Key research areas are:

  • Randomised controlled trials, assessing the effectiveness of complex health care interventions
  • Observational studies of the quality and effectiveness of health care
  • Qualitative research on patients' and professionals' experience of health care
  • Diagnostic accuracy and screening programmes
  • Medical ethics
