Rosalind Raine was appointed Professor of Health Care Evaluation at UCL, UK in 2005. She is a doctor, public health medicine consultant and an internationally renowned expert in the evaluation of health care and public health services/systems. She advises on health strategy internationally, nationally and regionally, and she is concerned with improving the quality and the widespread implementation of effective, equitable and cost effective care, often in the context of health reforms or reorganisation.
Rosalind is Director of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC), North Thames (www.clahrc-norththames.nihr.ac.uk ). This is a competitively awarded partnership funded by the Government (via NIHR), NHS, and industry. Rosalind established the largest CLAHRC in the country, bringing together one of the world’s largest concentrations of world-leading applied-health researchers (from five London universities including UCL, LSE and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine [LSHTM]) with some of the UK’s major NHS hospitals. This partnership means that the CLAHRC is in a prime position to evaluate and drive forward innovations to improve health care effectiveness and efficiency, and to evaluate major reorganisations to improve health care delivery.
Rosalind was invited to establish and lead the Department of Applied Health Research at UCL in 2012. The Department is currently involved in research grants of over £120M of which Rosalind is Chief Investigator on grants totalling £16M. She is also Assistant Director of Research and Development at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH). Before taking up her Chair at UCL, Rosalind held academic positions at LSHTM; public health medicine positions at North East London Strategic Health Authority (HA); Lambeth, Southwark & Lewisham HA and Brighton HA. She was a junior doctor at UCLH, the Middlesex Hospital, the Royal Postgraduate Medical School (Hammersmith Hospital), Edgware General Hospital and a trainee GP at Highbury General Practice, London.
Rosalind’s national and international appointments include Scientific Advisor to the World Health Organisation (Reproductive Health Research); Member, Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) Research Excellence Framework (Public Health, Health Services and Primary Care Panel, 2011- 2014) and Chair of the UK Heads of Academic Departments of Public Health (2010-14). Rosalind is the only public health professor to be cited by the BMA Medical Academic Staff Committee as a National Role Model in Academic Medicine. She is a member of UK and international research funding boards. She has published over 100 peer reviewed articles of original research in high impact journals (eg Lancet, BMJ) and was co-editor of the highly successful 20 book series “Understanding Public Health” (OUP London and TATA India).
Rosalind graduated in medicine from UCL having also obtained a 1st class honours BSc in psychology there. She went on to obtain an MSc (Distinction) in Public Health Medicine and a PhD in Health Services Research from LSHTM. She is an honorary professor at LSHTM and a Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health, Royal Colleges of Physicians, UK.
