CLAHRC aims

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.
