Innovation in health and social policy
This consultancy supports new thinking in health and social policy at more than a dozen UK universities including: Imperial College London, Brunel University, the London School of Economics and Political Science, and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
We help with strategic development of research programmes and with communications, aiming to ensure that programmes are cohesive and coherent, both internally and externally.
We focus on a number of policy areas including:
We like, where possible, to work with research programmes from their very beginnings, helping them to establish their key focus and develop their core narratives. We then support their publishing on and off line, including developing blogs as early as possible, creating brochures, interim reports, case studies, websites, seminar, conferences and press launches. All our work aims to ensure that research is as fruitful as possible for both staff and the outside world to ensure optimal outcomes. We want research programmes to be engaged in a lively conversation with their stakeholders from day one.
The consultancy was found in 2006 by Jack O’Sullivan who was a Harkness Fellow in Health Economics at New York University and has lectured at US universities including Yale and UCLA, comparing US and UK health reform. A former Associate Editor of The Independent, his journalism has focussed on health and social policy and he continues to write for a number of UK newspapers and journals. Jack co-founded the Fatherhood Institute, the UK’s leading think tank on fatherhood. The consultancy has long-running partnerships and associations with authors, researchers and designers working in this field.
