The Centre for Health and Social Care Research (CHSCR) offers an inter-professional approach to applied, practice focused and policy research. In addition to its national work the Centre also works successfully in partnership with a range of NHS and Social Care commissioning and provider organisations, voluntary and community groups and industries in Kent, Medway and South East London to ensure that our work is designed to meet local need.
Research and knowledge exchange activities in the Centre fall within three broad thematic programmes: Organisation and Delivery of Health and Social Care, Public Health and Mental Health. Please follow the below links for details of the current and past projects within each of these areas.
The Centre also provides training and support for staff across the Faculty of Health and Social Care to engage in research and scholarly activity - details can be found by following the 'Research Support' link on the left hand menu of this page.
The Dementia Services Development Centre South East is also part of the CHSCR.
