The Centre for Health Research (CHR) responds to a broad health agenda through research that spans the continuum from the study of factors maintaining and promoting health and wellbeing, to helping health professionals deal effectively with illness, disease, and recovery trajectories.
The CHR prides itself on its European and international research links and these, together with its close association with NHS researchers through the co-located NIHR Research Design Service South East, provide a vibrant environment for researchers and students who want to carry out research that results in positive changes to policy and practice.
As part of its commitment to research-led practice and a research-informed curriculum, staff from the centre regularly act as external speakers, advisors and experts to national and international bodies, as well as providing lectures and seminars internally. In addition, the centre's research seminars provide an opportunity for staff and students to debate and critique progressive research and methodological positions.
