Division of Health Services Research & Management

The Division of Health Services Research & Management (HSRM) brings together the Health Services Research, Health Management, Health Psychology and Public Health teams to deliver excellence in teaching and research.

The MSc Health Management, one of the longest established health management programmes in the UK, and the MSc Health Policy provide health management and policy perspectives on related aspects of healthcare. The MRes Clinical Research and MSc in Health Services Research provide training to enable students to conduct and evaluate research with the aim of improving service delivery, quality of care and patient outcomes. In addition to the Masters in Public Health, aimed at professionals from both clinical and non-clinical backgrounds, the Division runs highly regarded NHS-commissioned BSc and PGDip/MSc Public Health programmes for Health Visitors, School Nurses and Community Nurses as well as a BSc Primary Care programme focused on training for Practice Nurses. The MSc and DPsych Health Psychology programmes explore the psychological and behavioural processes that influence the development of illness, the promotion of health, and the delivery of healthcare through rigorous research that feeds into evidence-based practice. The Division also delivers the BSc Health and Social Care, designed for students who wish to develop a greater understanding of the health and social care sector and how it operates and is managed within a constantly evolving landscape.
