Welcome to the Health Literacy Group website
We are a group of health and education academics and practitioners, service providers and service users. We are a Special Interest Group of the Society for Academic Primary Care www.sapc.ac.uk.
We are committed to raising the profile of Health Literacy as a remediable cause of Health Inequalities in England, and to developing and undertaking research to achieve that. We are keen to link with others with an interest in the area, both within the UK and abroad.
Please use this website as a way to find out about current Health Literacy research, make new research contacts, develop new research ideas and find out about our regular meetings.
