Centre for Sustainable Healthcare

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.

About this Centre

With input from all six academic departments of the Management School, the Centre’s current focus includes analytics and modelling, leadership and organisational development, and 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.
