Liverpool Health Inequalities Research Institute

Our research programme focuses on inequalities in health status, and the provision and quality of care. LPCT colleagues work very closely with the study teams in the design, development, and dissemination of the research. The Institute aims to produce research which combines top quality academic rigour and credibility with maximum impact in supporting the PCT to understand and tackle health inequalities in Liverpool.

Currently, projects undertaken through and funded by the Institute, cover the themes of alcohol, obesity, cancer and mental health, are across the life course from pre-birth, through childhood to adults and address the implications for both practice and policy. Further details of the projects can be found by following the links below.
