ESHCRU 2 what we do

What is ESHCRU II?

ESHCRU II is the NIHR Policy Research Unit in the Economics of Health Systems and Interface with Social Care. It builds on the experience of ESHCRU I which conducted research on the economics of social and health care from 2010 to 2018.

ESHCRU II focuses on the interface between health and social care. Find out more about our research.

Who are we?

ESHCRU II is a collaboration between the Centre for Health Economics (CHE) at the University of York and the Care Policy and Evaluation Centre (CPEC) at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

ESHCRU II is one of 15 Policy Research Units or PRUs. The 15 PRUs provide a long-term resource for policy research and a rapid-response service to provide evidence for emerging policy needs. Click here to meet the team.


Patient and public involvement

Our previous programme was the Economics of Social and Health Care Research Unit (ESHCRU I). Two lay members were involved in a major way, and they have had a real impact on our work.

Below, Wendy Milborrow talks about her experience as a lay member of ESHCRU, and the director Anne Mason describes how Wendy’s insights changed the analysis for a project on dementia.
