Workshop on Immigration, Health and Well-Being

This workshop was held on 19th May 2016 in Oxford as part of the Immigration and NHS project funded by the John Fell Fund. Keynote lectures were given by Christian Dustmann (University College of London) and Marty Gaynor (Carnegie Mellon University). A final debate with Brian Bell (University of Oxford) and Martin Ruhs (University of Oxford), moderated by Martha Gill (The Economist), concluded the workshop.


Workshop on Asset Based Approaches to Health

We held an expert workshop in Oxford on 13 and 14 April 2015 to discuss our study of asset based approaches to health. The focus of our study, which is funded by the Wellcome Trust and conducted in collaboration with the Institute for Health and Human Development at the University of East London, is economic issues relating to asset based approaches.

The aims of the workshop were to:

  • Discuss how we might identify and organise health and wellbeing assets so that they are more efficiently productive of health and wellbeing;
  • Discuss the structures, performance frameworks, budgetary arrangements and planning processes which would be necessary to achieve this;
  • Identify further intellectual/research work to support moving forwards.

Experts from different disciplines with a special interest in asset based approaches, including development of community capital, attended the workshop. We are grateful for their contributions which will inform the remaining parts of our study.


Workshop on Trends in Emergency Admissions of Older People

On 3rd December 2013 the Centre, in conjunction with the Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford, held a workshop in Oxford to discuss trends in emergency hospital admissions of older people in England. The aim was to consider new analyses on trends over the last decade in numbers of emergency hospital admissions of older people and bed days of those admissions and to discuss the demand, supply and policy-related factors that may have influenced these trends.


Workshop on Assessment and Eligibility for Adult Social Care

On 20th May 2013 the Centre held an international workshop at Skipton House, London, on Assessment and Eligibility Frameworks for Adult Social Care. The workshop brought together academics and analysts to discuss the findings of a review of international practice on this topic recently completed by the Centre.


Conference on Primary Care in Deprived Areas

On 22nd-23rd March 2012 and in conjunction with the College of Medicine, the Centre held a successful conference at Nuffield College, Oxford on Primary Care in Deprived Areas.
