The CLAHRC Partnership Programme supports the work of the NIHR CLAHRCs by facilitating knowledge exchange between CLAHRCs, the research and innovation infrastructure and the wider NHS.
You can read more about some of the work that CLAHRCs have been involved in nationally in the brochure - World Class Research Making a Difference (pdf).
The NIHR CLAHRCs aim to:
Develop and conduct applied health research that is relevant across the NHS, and to translate research findings into improved outcomes for patients
Create a distributed model for the conduct and application of applied health research that links those who conduct applied health research with all those who use it in practice across the health community
Create and embed approaches to research and its dissemination that are specifically designed to take account of the way that health care is delivered across sectors and a wide geographical area.
Increase the country’s capacity to conduct high quality applied health research focused on the needs of patients, and particularly research targeted at chronic disease and public health interventions
Improve patient outcomes locally and across the wider NHS
Contribute to the country’s growth by working with the life sciences industry.
