Key research areas
Activity within the Centre for Health and Clinical Research is focused on three main research themes. Researchers work closely across disciplines combining research interests and expertise.
Improving the quality of life, independence and function for people living with long term health problems including dementia care.
Leading research and innovative practice in pre-hospital and emergency care.
Making a difference to children and young people's wellbeing in community and healthcare environments.
The Centre also includes three cross-cutting themes:
Informing researchers, and supporting service users' and carers' participation in research.
Providing evaluative research, knowledge exchange and consultancy for health and social care services.
Supporting the co-creation of clinically informed, relevant research; evidence informed commissioning; and the integration of research evidence into clinical practice.
