Health care is not just concerned with medical care; it also involves the careful management of a complex system and network of organisations.

Drawing on the School's internationally renowned expertise, this group explores how health care organisations work, why they work and, crucially, how to improve them. The group brings together faculty members from diverse academic backgrounds, including marketing, entrepreneurship, public health, health services research and operations management.




Members have research interests, teaching or consultancy posts in health care, ranging from the public sector, NHS and related institutions, to the private and not-for-profit sector. Their research covers a wide range of topics, from developing the workforce through to researching improved ways of designing surgery theatre teams.

The group brings a multidisciplinary approach to health care that fosters a vibrant and applied research agenda.
