NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care, South Yorkshire (CLAHRC-SY)
The NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care, South Yorkshire (CLAHRC-SY) is one of nine similar research collaborations across England. They began in 2008, with funding for five years.
The main aim of the CLAHRCs is to ensure that health research is used to develop new products, treatments and approaches to clinical practice. They do this by bringing parts of the NHS together with researchers based in universities.
Over the next five years CLAHRC-SY will concentrate on:
- the amount of research undertaken in South Yorkshire, and the way it’s done
- the design of health services across South Yorkshire, and the way they’re provided and then evaluated
- how people use our research evidence to improve healthcare
- how we inform and respond to practice-based and joint strategic commissioning.
South Yorkshire is well placed to exploit benefits from the CLAHRC. Evidence from this pilot will inform local decision making and also feed in to national policy.
