Health Policy

This programme explores the decision-making processes and action plans, especially those adopting a 'policy process' approach, which are put in place to address specific aims with the health services in the UK and world-wide. Special interests in this area include finance and service contracting, policy implementation studies, quality systems and public involvement. Current and past students have investigated subjects such as purchaser-provider reforms, national health insurance system design, public and patient involvement, the UK private medical insurance sector, and public and patient involvement.

Assessment methods

A thesis of no more than 100,000 words is submitted, which demonstrates original research that contributes significantly to the subject area. This is then followed by an oral examination of the thesis (viva).
