Dr Colin Lorne secures an RGS-IBG grant
6 April 2017
Colin Lorne from Alliance Manchester Business School has been awarded £3000 from the RGS-IBG Small Research Grant for the project 'Spatial politics and the English NHS: Examining how global policy mobilities shape local healthcare reform'.
The pilot research examines how ‘global’ place-based models of Accountable Care Organisations (ACOs) are being circulated and adapted by think-tanks, consultants and academics, and get embedded as ‘local’ solutions in the English NHS. Working across geography and health services research, the research places geographic analysis central to understanding the on-going spatial re-organising of the English NHS. The project runs until September 2018.
