Health and social care
Health and social care policy attempts to address numerous challenging problems within society: Should fertility treatment be available as a right on the NHS? Should older people pay for their own care? Are services delivered fairly to all sections of the community? Which policies are most effective in reducing social inequalities in health? You have the opportunity to consider these and many other important questions.
Our postgraduate research students' projects cover a range of issues within the fields of health services, social work and health policy. Particular interests include health care organisation and policy; risk assessment and management; primary care; public and user views of healthcare; care work in health and social care; adoption; foster care; adult attachment theory; mental health; child protection; race, ethnicity and health.
