What We Do

The Centre for Health Communications Research (CHCR) was established in 2012.  It focuses on the communication dilemmas, challenges, issues and problems faced by health sector organisations. Our vision is to encourage the use of effective and professional communications to improve patient outcomes and strengthen the patient experience. We work at the boundary between academe and the public sector delivering rigorous, evidence-based solutions in a timely fashion.

CHCR is part of the Faculty of Society & Health at Buckinghamshire New University.  We have strong relationships with both public and private sector health and social care organisations. Our goal is to be recognised as a best-in-class source of academic and applied research, teaching and consulting practice.
