The National Institute for Health Research announces 24 Million GBP funding for 13 new Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRCs) to help tackle major health challenges. Lord Howe, Health Minister said: This is great news for patients - this funding could potentially help the development of ground breaking treatments which could revolutionize care. With a growing elderly population, the need for innovative and effective solutions has never been more important (NIHR Website, see quote below).

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.

Professor Dame Sally C. Davies, Chief Medical Officer and Chief Scientific Advisor at the Department of Health
