Professor Mark Exworthy

Educational background

I have previously held posts at Southampton University, London School of Economics (LSE), University College London (UCL) and Oxford Brookes University. I was also a Harkness Fellow in health care policy, based at University of California-San Francisco (UCSF) (funded by the Commonwealth Fund of New York). I am also currently a Visiting Professor at the University of California-San Francisco. 

Personal profile


My research interests in public management fall into 3 themes: (a) Governance and implementation relating to policies to tackle health inequalities and other social `problems', (b) Professionals and managerialism in health care organisations (especially relating to management of clinical performance), and (c) Decentralisation in health care organisations.

My research has been funded by the ESRC, NHS (Dept of Health and NIHR), Joseph Rowntree Foundation, NHS Confederation and the Commonwealth Fund of New York. I have been involved as PI or co-PI on research grants totalling £2.5m.


I am the Course Director of the MSc `Leadership and management in health', delivered jointly between Royal Holloway and Kingston Business School: I also teach a 3rd elective course `Managing beyond profit.'
