Course summary

Research across the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences spans ‘from Cell to Society’, with the work of the Department of Public Health and Policy firmly at the Societal end of the spectrum. We provide a service to the public health profession and local practitioners by supporting specialist training in the NHS and acting as academic supervisors and tutors for trainees, and engaging with local communities.

Overview

Teaching and service work is the social model of health and how that can be applied to address inequalities in health and in health care.

Public health in Liverpool has a long and influential history, including the appointment of England’s first Medical Officer of Health, Dr. William Henry Duncan, in 1847. Dr. Duncan was followed by a number of eminent medical officers who, reflecting their strong links with the University, were also professors here. The Department of Public Health and Policy has grown steadily from these roots, and is now home to a multidisciplinary team drawn from a range of subjects including medical and health sciences, epidemiology, statistics, sociology, psychology, anthropology, community development, policy analysis, history and civic design. They are actively involved in research, education, and health service work related to promoting the health of the public.

Research across the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences spans ‘from Cell to Society’: with the work of the Department of Public Health and Policy firmly at the Societal end of the spectrum.

The department's research focuses on services and systems for health and well-being operating at the community and population levels. It covers healthy members of the public as well as patients, seeking to understand how to improve the systems that society needs to put in place to promote, sustain and protect health, prevent disease and care for the sick.
