About Health Literacy UK 

Health Literacy UK is a special interest group of the Society for Academic Primary Care. We're primarily dedicated to building the evidence base for health literacy. 

We explore the impact of health literacy on people and their lives in order to support national policy and reduce inequalities. 

By working together, we are able to discuss and develop new research ideas, run new research projects, write reports and research papers, and support the implementation of research findings into practice. 

There are also regular face-to-face meetings, discussions of ideas and collaborative work through our website. 

We invite patients, patient groups, health care practitioners and providers, teachers, policymakers, non-government organisations and academics to become members (free of charge!).
