National Institute for Health Research, Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care 

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.
