The East of England Population Health Research Hub

The East of England Population Health Research Hub (EoE PHResH) is a collaborative network of population health practitioners, academics and regional research infrastructures in the East of England region.

EoE PHResH connects regional research expertise with local public health in practice to inform, co-design and implement responsive research and public health evaluations.

What We Do

Our Vision

A sustainable, connected network of population health practitioners and researchers in the East of England region who collaborates to provide evidence which informs health and social care delivery, improves regional population health and reduces inequalities.

Our Strategic Priorities

To achieve our vision, our priorities are to develop:

  • A sustainable, connected regional network of public health practitioners and researchers who collaborate to provide an evidence-based approach to improving population health.
  • A regional research strategy which is developed through deep insights of local needs and assets and codesigned with local authorities, academia, regional public health bodies, regional research infrastructures, and representatives of the community in order to maximise the impact of regional research and address research gaps.
  • Evidence informing policy and practice where researchers communicate evidence in accessible ways for practitioner audiences; practitioners translate research into policy and practice; public health practitioners and researchers exchange knowledge, discuss challenges, problem solve and take action together to make progress.
  • An established research culture within public health practice with a system which enables workplace exchange between practice and academia; public health apprenticeships and skill development across the region. 
  • Excellence in evaluation by utilising expertise in the region to build evaluation skills to demonstrate the impact of local public health approaches and have evaluation findings inform population health interventions.
