Health Psychology in Manchester
The Manchester Centre has strong affiliations with national and international research partners, NHS trusts, NICE and learned organisations. Within The University we have strong existing collaborations with research centres, institutes and schools from the Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences; our collaborations enable us to undertake research across a broad range of applied health and behavioural medicine arenas.
The configuration of the Faculty Institutes and Centres offers tremendous scope for building multidisciplinary research teams underpinned by excellence in the field of Health Psychology.
The Manchester Centre for Health Psychology was established towards the end of 2012 following an exciting few years for health psychology. Alison Wearden is currently editor of British Journal of Health Psychology. In 2011 she ended her term of office as National Chair for the BPS Division of Health Psychology.
