The purpose of the Centre is to disseminate research to policy makers, health experts and the media and inform the public, setting out a view of health and social care policy in the UK in keeping with the founding principles of the NHS.
Our long term objective is to re-frame the policy debate on health and social care so that it is consistent with the public interest and to ensure that the debate on health and social care policy is more varied, more evidence-based and more open and accessible to citizens.
CHPI’s research comes from a strong network of expert contributors, including health policy social scientists, public health practitioners.
