About us

We work closely with local NHS and local government stakeholders to bring European learning, practice and policy to the local health community.

Since 2005, we have developed and managed more than €66.6 million of European projects, organised study tours and staff exchanges with our international partners and kept our stakeholders up-to-date with relevant policy issues in the European Union.

We see our job as:

  • providing training and learning opportunities through collaborations with colleagues from other countries
  • working with European partners to assess the impact of new legislation on stakeholder organisations
  • enabling partners and stakeholders to stay up-to-date with developments in health and social care across the world
  • helping people and organisations reach health networks, institutions and other relevant bodies outside the United Kingdom.

The Health and Europe Centre is an active member of several EU networks. For more information, or for access to any of our networks’ documentation, please contact us.
