Centre for Health and Social Care Improvement (CHSCI)
The Centre for Health and Social Care
Improvement (CHSCI) is a multi-disciplinary
research centre at the University of Wolverhampton. The
centre's work incorporates multi-disciplinary and
inter-professional collaboration at local, national and

Engagement with business, voluntary and charitable organisations
within the local economy is key to our current and future
The importance of service user and public perspectives in
shaping health and social care practice, education and innovation
in the 21st century is a central philosophy that underpins our work
programmes, commitment to partnership working and professional
relationships in CHSCI.
Along with other schools across the university, CHSCI provides a
forum within which colleagues are enabled to explore health and
social care clinical practice or education issues alongside other
established areas of their school’s work.
