Mission Statement

To deliver expertise in our key topic areas and respond as a coherent group, demonstrating success by delivering research that is:

  • Evidence-based, outcome-focused and rational, both economically and socially.
  • Reflective of current/future needs, rather than historic patterns, and better informed than at present.
  • Addresses major health conditions and gains better outcomes.
  • Offers a better understanding of how to tackle the constraints to innovation and development in healthcare
  • Embedded into practice in health care.

Vision Statement

To support the development of programmes that help health care managers and systems: innovate, measure and deliver quality, and address the challenges of demonstrating value.

As a department, pursuing this vision, we will seek to create and maintain an ethos that is:

  • World-class, respected for the quality of its research, the skills of personnel and the size of its impact.
  • Sustainable, with sufficient momentum, skilled staff and funding so that it continues to achieve its short and long-term goals.
  • Collaborative, involving long-term, embedded engagement with key partners in, for example, Government, the NHS and the supply chain.
  • Strategic, tackling issues in a systematic way.
  • Practical, focused on real life problems, not only theoretical issues.
