Clinical Operational Research Unit

We are a team of researchers dedicated to applying operational research, data analysis and mathematical modelling to problems in health care.

The projects we take on include work with local NHS organisations, those informing national health policy and improving national services for congenital heart disease.

We also undertake bespoke consultancy work for health services organisations, government and charities.
