Health, Wellbeing & Society
Our research touches upon every stage of the human life-span, from birth to death. By linking health and social care, we are able to focus on people’s quality of life. We make a difference by changing people’s lives through our research and delivering new and improved ways of treating and caring for patients.
Researchers work across a range of health and social care disciplines, including nursing, midwifery, clinical research, professional practice and development. Read about the latest news, projects and research developments in this theme here.
