We are a friendly, thriving multi-disciplinary research department located in Central London. Staff aim to develop a better understanding of health and prevention of ill health through vigorous research and the development of research methodology.

This knowledge is applied via undergraduate and graduate teaching, contributions to national and international health policy and contributions to the wider public understanding on health.

The Department sits within the Institute of Epidemiology and Health Care and Faculty of Population Health Sciences.

Ageing population

New modelling study based on ELSA forecasts fast growing increase in the number of over 65s in need of social care

A new public health policy model has been developed by the Whitehall II/Liverpool University research collaboration, funded by the British Heart Foundation. The first results were published in Lancet Public Health on 24th May. We find the ageing population in England & Wales with care needs is set to grow by 25% within a decade. The IMPACT-BAM probabilistic Markov model simulates ageing of the population from 35 to 100, through 10 health states.
