Research, policy and practice play a key role in the achievement of high-quality health and social care in hospitals.

But, to ensure that patients consistently receive high-quality healthcare services, there needs to be a person centred care agenda.

At Picker, our health services research partnerships with leading universities, hospitals, and charities enable us to develop and share a better understanding of both outcomes and experiences of care.

Our work with governments, their agencies and regulators, helps to ensure that this insight is translated into health and social care policy and practice that supports the delivery of high-quality patient centred care for all.

Bringing you the latest views and research on person centred health and social care, all of our reports and policy documents are available for download below.
