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

We are looking for one individual to join our Advisory Group. The Group will meet once a year either remotely via Zoom, or face-to-face in London. More information about the Group is in the Terms of Reference.

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.
