NIHR Policy Research Unit in the Economics of Health Systems and the Interface with Social Care (ESHCRU II)

We are health and social care economists from the University of York and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

We have a 5-year programme of work funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).

We use economics to help us understand the health system, and its overlap with social care. Our research mainly uses data and numbers (quantitative) and involves analysing large datasets.
