Health Policy and Politics Network

Professional opinion

The Health Policy & Politics Network (HPPN) is successor to the Politics of Health Group that has been run for the last 20 years or so in the form of a special interest group of the Political Studies Association. HPPN has now become independent in order more easily to encourage interdisciplinary working. HPPN aims to provide a forum for the reporting of research and analytical discussion about any aspect of the politics of health, health care policy or health services management and to facilitate the development of informal and collaborative relationships between academics and interested practitioners working in the above fields.

We invite submission of paper presentations to our one-day event at Keele University on 24th April on any topic related to health politics, policy or management. Speakers will be allocated 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion/questions.

To propose a paper, please submit an abstract to Calum Paton ( by 1st March 2014.
