Health and wellbeing is an interdisciplinary strategic research theme across the whole of NTU and various aspects of Health and Social Care are a focus for research in the business school. The particular interests within the public policy and management group are high-level systemic issues and changes within the NHS and the Social Care System. The team have previously looked at the impact of the 2012 Health and Social Care Act and are currently investigating the introduction of Integrated Care Systems. The team also attempt to research some of the biggest operational challenges facing the NHS, such overcrowding in Accident and & Emergency (A&E) and delayed discharges from hospitals back into residential or domiciliary care.
The programme maintains close working relationships with associate members from both academia and the NHS, who regularly participate and contribute to the programme's activities.
