UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health



Our research aims to answer questions that can make a positive difference to children and young people's lives. We have a particular focus on providing evidence that can be used by policy makers and providers of health and public health services. As a part of UCL, and as a programme within the world-renowned UCL Institute of Child Health (ICH), we are well placed to collaborate with leaders in child health research both in the UK and internationally.

Using Linked Administrative Health Databases

Pia Hardelid's interests are in using linked administrative health databases to examine the epidemiology of respiratory tract infections in children, infant and child mortality and quality of care for children with chronic conditions.

She holds a postdoctoral fellowship from the National Institute for Health Research to determine whether influenza vaccines, antivirals and antibiotics can prevent hospital admissions in children.
