Since our establishment, we have developed significantly, bringing in a substantial number of research awards totalling £48 million, and producing over 1600 peer-review journal papers, books and reports since 2004 alone. Our contributions to health and social care policy and practice have been recognised through a number of awards, accreditations, and the Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education (awarded in 2009). Our growing reputation has attracted many requests for research, expert advice, collaborations on research proposals, and significant links with policy makers, government bodies and organisations such as the Department of Health (UK), European Commission and the World Health Organization.

Our research base contributes to health policy and health economics (LSE Health), social care policy and mental health economics (PSSRU), and social care practice (SSCR).


LSE Health  is a multi-disciplinary research centre for health policy, health economics and demography, with over 20 years’ experience in coordinating global research and policy activity.



SSCR commissions and conducts research to improve the evidence base for adult social care in England.



PSSRU aims to conduct high-quality policy analysis, evaluation, research and consultancy in the field of social care and mental health to inform and influence policy, practice and theory.
