Kent - Centre for Health Service Studies

CHSS is one of three research centres within the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research at the University of Kent. We have close links with our colleagues in the other two centres, PSSRU and the Tizard Centre.

We undertake high quality research into a wide range of health systems and health services issues at local, national and international levels.   We collaborate with a wide range of partners, service users, professionals and policy-makers in health and social care in Kent, the UK and in other countries to improve the links between research, policy and practice.
