About us

The Cambridge Centre for Health Services Research (CCHSR) is a collaboration between researchers at University of Cambridge and at RAND Europe, a not for profit policy research institute. Co-led by Steve Morris, RAND Professor of Health Services Research at University of Cambridge, and Jon Sussex, Chief Economist at RAND Europe, CCHSR’s aim is to inform policy through evidence-based research on health services. CCHSR achieves its goals by conducting high quality externally funded research and evaluation studies about organisation and delivery of healthcare. A key strength is the diversity of disciplines and skills within the Centre, with its members coming from backgrounds including medicine, psychology, health economics, sociology, statistics, health services research, public health and public policy.Studies include those that focus on patient experience in primary care, socio-economic variation in cancer outcomes and their link to the quality of health services, and alternatives to face-to-face consultations in primary care.
