LSE Health and Social Care
LSE Health and Social Care (LSEHSC) was established as a research centre in 2000, when two existing research groups were brought together under its umbrella: LSE Health and the Personal Social Services Research Unit (PSSRU). Since then, the Centre has developed significantly and now incorporates the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies and the NIHR School for Social Care Research (SSCR). The Centre's mission is the production and dissemination of high quality research and policy analysis in health and social care.
The Centre’s contributions to health and social care policy and practice have been recognised through a number of awards, accreditations, the Queen’s Anniversary Prize, and the fact that its growing reputation has attracted many requests for research, expert advice, collaborations on research proposals, and significant links with policy makers, government bodies and organisations such as the European Commission and the World Health Organization.
