National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRCs) 

Collaborative partnerships between the National Health Service, public services and Higher Education Institutions, focused on improving patient outcomes through the conduct and application of applied health research and evidence-based implementation.

The CLAHRCs were set up to improve patient outcomes across the geographical area covered by the Collaboration through three key interlinked functions:

• conducting high quality applied health research, 

• implementing the findings from research into clinical practice, 

• increasing the capacity of NHS organisations to engage with and   undertake applied health services research.

CLAHRC Impact document

NIHR CLAHRCs Impacts are wide ranging and cover the identification, management and prevention of common mental and physical conditions across the life course. 

We hope that this document will demonstrate through real time examples how CLAHRCs are "bridging the gap between research and the frontline NHS"

We are delighted that this publication includes two case studies from our region Expanded Newborn Screening (page 24) and the Electronic Frailty Index (page 38).
