What is the partnership?

The partnership is a group of organisations who want to work together to improve health and social care for our region. That includes academics, health and social care professionals, service user representatives and associates.

We run research groups and projects, all supported by shared resources and optimised services.

We plan early-stage research and innovation projects with the aim of having a major impact on the way we work, how service users are supported and the overall capability of our region.

  • Develop a mature innovation culture – helping individuals to make innovation happen more easily
