Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine

Research Excellence Framework (REF)

 In the Research Excellence Framework 2014, the Centre was ranked 5th out of 32 entries under UoA2 (Public Health, Health Services and Primary Care). The results reflected a return of 20.61 full-time equivalent category A staff. The overall quality rating was of staff 44% at 4* (world leading) and 42% at 3* (internationally excellent). We did particularly well on impact and environment with 100% of our quality ratings at 3 or above. Psychiatry provided 2 of the 3 case studies for the Wolfson Institute, which received an overall average score of 3.74 out of 4. The two cases submitted by the Centre can be viewed here.

We are well placed for the next REF2021, including primary research outputs, a strong environment, and case studies.
