Humanities Centre for Health Policy

Strathclyde’s Centre for Health Policy harnesses the university’s resources to play a leading role in reducing health inequalities in Glasgow, Scotland and internationally.

We work to:

  • support, expand and increase the profile of health policy research at Strathclyde
  • strengthen and broaden connections with external organisations working on health policy, including via collaborative research
  • support School and University impact activities via public and policy engagement, knowledge exchange and research impact for health policy topics
  • develop health policy teaching and training within School of Social Work and Social Policy and the wider university, including via our innovative MSc in Health and Social Policy and our PhD Public Health & Health Policy

We have developed a series of purposeful partnerships with leading international universities and health organisations. These provide a stimulating and valuable network of contacts and opportunities for students and partners we collaborate with.

The Centre is led by Katherine Smith and Ellen Stewart, and guided by an Advisory Board of senior policymakers and staff from public sector bodies and charities. Centre for Health Policy Founding Directors Neil Quinn and Lee Knifton continue to provide invaluable support with the Centre’s development.
