The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) South West Peninsula - or PenCLAHRC - undertakes high-quality applied health research focused on the needs of patients and supports the translation of research evidence into practice in the NHS.
We are committed to supporting and conducting high-quality applied health research that addresses the real concerns of patients and clinicians across the South West.
We work across the South West to increase capacity to use and generate research evidence through the provision of a range of training opportunities for clinicians and researchers.
Our innovative approach to involvement seeks to embed meaningful patient and public involvement and engagement into everything we do.
Have you got a clinical uncertainty or research question that needs answering?
We could help develop it further.
