Thanks Emma!

In 2012, Welcome on January 11, 2012 at 2:26 pm

In December’s edition of theVoice, the University of Southampton’s magazine for staff, Dr Emma Roe, from Human Geography described HEAL as ‘an inspiring group to be part of’. Thanks Emma, it is great to be working with you.

2011 was a busy year for HEAL and we hope that 2012 will be even more inspiring. The Law School held interviews for a number of new posts in December and we are delighted that amongst the appointees are some new colleagues with interests in health, ethics and law. We hope to be able to introduce them once the contractual formalities are concluded. In the meantime….


Welcome to the HEAL UoS blog!

In Welcome on September 1, 2011 at 3:00 am

As it says in the ‘About‘ section, HEAL UoS ~ the Health Ethics and Law research group at the University of Southampton ~ was established in 2005 through the efforts of Prof. Jonathan Montgomery and Dr. Caroline Jones. We were delighted to have Prof. Hazel Biggs join us in 2009. Together the three of us run the network, arranging lunchtime seminars on topical subjects & occasional workshops, and liaising with colleagues and peers to discuss and coordinate responses to public consultations in the field of Health Care Ethics and Law, broadly conceived. We try to both foster and further develop collaborative relationships across the University and local NHS community.
