Our work in this area includes both research for policy and research of policy, from the national/ system level to the organisational level. In particular, we focus on the stages of health policy including policy formulation, implementation and evaluation.
In our policy work, we collaborate with a range of regional and national health and care organisations in the statutory, voluntary and private sectors, in order to maximise the impact and reach of this activity.
HSMC seeks constantly to act as a bridge between research and practice. Our policy work is a key part of this process, and includes:
- research-based workshops and seminars for senior NHS leaders;
- briefings on new and emerging policy ideas;
- round table research discussions for policy makers;
- analytical support and advice to health service organisations; and
- regular series of Viewpoint articles on current health and social care topics on the HSMC website.
