Prof Bob Hudson
Bob has had a career in teaching, consultancy, research and publishing spanning 35 years. As well as occupying a range of increasingly senior positions in academic life, he has also served as an elected member of one local authority, and as a co-opted member of an additional two authorities. He holds a BA (Hons) in Economics from the University of Manchester (1968) and Post Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of Manchester (1969). Before joining the School in 2004, he was Honorary Professor of Partnership Studies at the University of Birmingham. Prior to that he was Senior and subsequently Principal Research Fellow at the Nuffield Institute for Health at the University of Leeds, a position he took up in 1995. At the Nuffield Institute he undertook the lead on several major research projects with a focus on partnership working. In his earlier career, Bob was a Visiting Fellow in Health and Community Care at the Institute of Health Studies, University of Durham [1992-5], and in 1991 held, by invitation, a Visiting Fellowship at the Kings Fund Institute, London. For most of the preceding twenty years he was Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Social Policy at New College, Durham.
Bob is also a special advisor on partnership issues to the House of Commons Education & Skills Select Committee, and an advisor to the Integrated Care Network. He holds several editorial positions - Associate Editor, Health and Social Care in the Community; Editorial Board Advisor, Journal of Interprofessional Care; and Associate Editor, International Journal of Integrated Care. In his spare time he likes nothing better than to watch Sunderland AFC serve up a brand of fluent and exciting football. He still watches them anyway.
