I am delighted we have today announced the successful schemes and I’m very much looking forward to hearing updates on how patients will benefit from this research. The teams are following a strong tradition of success as the National Institute for Health Research has a proven record track record of world-class health research in the NHS. Supporting our leading researchers is so important and these NIHR CLAHRCs will link the NHS, universities, and other relevant organisations providing care for patients in what will be ground-breaking work to improve the lives of thousands of patients across the country.
