This thesis is the first attempt at creating a comprehensive geographical understanding of the relationship between health and internal migration within Great Britain for working age adults. Drawing on international literature, theories and mechanisms driving the high rates of internal migration among those with poor mental health, and the low rates among those with poor physical health are assessed, and these are then tested in three distinct empirical analyses. Previous attempts at modelling these interrelationships fail to account for realistic place influences on migration behaviour, which are also known to affect health behaviours and outcomes, and this shortfall is overcome with the use of multilevel modelling. Throughout, evidence is presented that, although moderated by place of residence, both physical and mental health have an effect on the likelihood of moving and of long-distance migration within Great Britain, and further avenues for research are suggested.
