IMS Online

IMS Online is provided by the Intelligence and Surveillance team within the Public Health Institute to record activity such as recovery support interventions and syringe exchange provision for reporting to local public health commissioners. It also allows for the inclusion of exchange activity in the Integrated Monitoring System (IMS) which captures details of the non-structured treatment activity delivered by a variety of providers including syringe exchanges and substance misuse services across Cheshire & Merseyside.

Public Health Institute

The Public Health Institute (PHI) is a research and teaching institute based within the Faculty of Health at Liverpool John Moores University. The research centre formerly called the Centre for Public Health (CPH) became a research institute and was renamed as the Public Health Institute on 1st August 2016.

We offer expertise in a range of methodologies including epidemiology and statistics, qualitative research, participatory methods, systematic reviews and evaluation. PHI draws from a wide range of Honorary Lecturers and Professors based in the health services and other public bodies, both in the UK and abroad, in order to support multi-disciplinary approaches to public health.
