The Centre for Research in Sustainable Healthcare (CRSH) is one of a number of research centres within Lancaster University Management School and acts as a coordinating hub for healthcare related research across the different departments of the school, and via the Health Innovation Campus (HIC) across the wider university. With input from all seven academic departments of the management school the Centre’s current focus falls into three broad areas of expertise:

  • Analytics and Modelling
  • Leadership and Organisational Development
  • Aspects of Productivity and Efficiency.

A further important dimension of this Centre is its focus on conducting research in a multi-disciplinary fashion, drawing on experts from across the Management School or across the University. This Centre also seeks to develop a strong element of co-production in its research, working closely with local and national practitioners and managers across a wide range of healthcare topics.


The Mission of the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare is to offer a point of access to the global expertise available within LUMS; to undertake ‘real world’ healthcare management research; and to have an impact on healthcare management policy within local, national and international contexts.
