Population Health Sciences

Based across King’s Guy’s and Denmark Hill campuses, we combine over 160 experts with patients and the public to better understand population health and primary care, social sciences and policy, epidemiology, statistics and health economics.

Our academics use large data sets to evaluate therapies, models of care and highlight inequalities in access to treatment. We have transformed stroke rehabilitation, linked antidepressant use to weight gain and uncovered the connections between urban deprivation and long-term health problems.

We teach the next generation of physiotherapists and deliver general practice training to every medical student at King’s. Our clinicians work with King’s Health Partners in London, across the NHS and in Somaliland, Sierra Leone and the Democratic Republic of the Congo through our Centre for Global Health & Health Partnerships.

We are integrated with major National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) infrastructures. We lead the data analytics cluster within the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) at Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and the Stroke and Public Health themes within the NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) South London. We host the NIHR Research Design Service London, and the NIHR Clinical Research Network National Speciality Hub.
