Re-engineering Health Policy Research for Fairer Decisions and Better Health: the EQUIPOL project
Living in a deprived area or occupying a lower position in society can cost years of healthy life, and the cumulative toll for society loads intolerable pressure onto public services.
Emergency departments (EDs) in the UK are under severe pressure because so many people are using them. This means that staff become stressed and patients may not always get the treatment they need in a timely way.
Following a successful bid to the Department of Health Policy Research Programme, a team of researchers from the University of York, Department of Health Sciences and The King's Fund will work in partnership to conduct fast, responsive research and analytical work to inform all stages of national policy development, implementation and evaluation in health and social care.
