Research Theme : Population Health Data
Novel health datasets available to research communities such as routinely collected data can be used to answer a wide range of data-driven research questions that can directly benefit health research and practice. Using these data, projects within the group cover a range of areas including epidemiology, diagnostic accuracy and health service improvement. We apply existing methods as well as developing new ones with a number of clinical foci including Neurology, Respiratory and Mental Health Services as well as Care Homes. The group works with a diverse range of local and national organisations such as the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID), Office for National Statistics (ONS), the Integrated Care System and Public Health services within the local government. In addition we support local NHS data science projects and groups.
