ESHCRU 2 what we do

Who are we?

ESHCRU 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 is part of the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) and is one of 20 Policy Research Units or PRUs.  The NIHR has awarded £100 million over five years to 20 PRUs across England that provide evidence to respond to new and emerging policy needs. 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.

Learn about some of our Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) members’ experiences of ESHCRU, and how their insights have influenced the programme.
