An Oxford Brookes University healthcare research group is featured in a commemorative book that celebrates 75 years of medical breakthroughs and the National Health Service.

Oxford Institute of Applied Health Research (OxInAHR) is showcased in the newly published 75 Years of the National Health Service, written by academics and industry experts. 

Professor Paul Carding, Director of OxInAHR (formerly known as OxINMAHR)  and Professor Eila Watson, the institute’s Deputy Director, attended the official launch of the commemorative book at the Houses of Parliament in Westminster earlier this month.

Published by St James’s House and the History of Parliament Trust, the book includes first person accounts from patients, health professionals and politicians about the history, people and policies that have shaped the NHS. Additionally, the book celebrates medical and welfare breakthroughs of the last 75 years. The book is published in both print and ebook formats.

Lord Norton of Louth, Chair of the History of Parliament Trust, says in the introduction: “This book charts the history of the provision of health care in Britain from the early Middle Ages to the present day when it is one of the largest elements of the British state.”

Professor Carding said: “The institute is immensely proud to be featured in this important book which celebrates world-class health care service delivery, innovation and research. Our contribution highlights our multidisciplinary work involving nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and psychologists. It’s wonderful that this publication gives us the opportunity to highlight the research they carry out here at  OxInAHR and the ongoing positive impact this research has on the National Health Service.”
