A delegation from HSMC was in Beijing last week to meet with representatives from the Health Science Centre at Peking University to share experiences of health care reform. The visit involved a joint research symposium, visits to local health services and discussions of future joint projects. These include the creation of a China-UK Health Policy Research Network led by HSMC and the Health Science Centre (one of the leading health policy research centres in China). The visit was funded through the British Academy and we are looking forward to our colleagues from Peking University visiting Birmingham in the winter.
