Collaboration and partnership are at the heart of all we do. As well as working closely with patients and healthcare staff, the UCHD project belongs to the Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care for South Yorkshire (CLAHRC-SY).

CLAHRC-SY is a five-year project concerned with healthcare across South Yorkshire. It conducts high-quality applied research into how services are designed. It shares the findings, with a view to improving healthcare provision for local people.

The UCHD team are contributing to this mission by forming partnerships, undertaking research and sharing the results. Use the menu on this page to find out more about the people and organisations we’re working with.
