SOCIAL CARE SYSTEMS AND COMMISSIONING

Our work

The Unit focuses on:

  • Understanding health and social care systems
  • The commissioning and planning of all types of health and care services
  • Exploring outcomes associated with different policy and organisational approaches
  • Developing and using sound and credible methods for research
  • Creating strong links with policy-makers, health regulators, NHS managers and practitioners
We hold regular liaison seminars with Department of Health and Social Care policy leads and NHS commissioners, and establish links with key patient and health organisations.
