Our skills and expertise

We accelerate research and innovation into practice. Our flexible and entrepreneurial team provides a range of skills and expertise to support our NHS and academic partners to improve health and care through research, innovation and education.

Creating and leveraging networks

We create, convene and leverage clinical, academic, patient and industry networks. Our strong and collaborative partnership, bringing together multiple research and innovation functions, enables us to mobilise world-leading expertise and relevant experience to respond rapidly to local, national and global health challenges.

Addressing needs through innovation

We draw on clinical academic insights and real-world evidence to identify solutions to complex problems. By supporting innovators and signposting the most promising innovations and research, we help our partners and the wider health and care system to co-create, test and implement solutions that improve health and care.

Implementing sustainable change

Our team of improvement experts and educators help equip the health and care workforce with the capability and tools they need to change systems and behaviours to improve patient access, experience and outcomes. We support the development of learning health systems to enable partners to learn and act fast to implement evidence-based changes for the benefit of patients.

Embedding research and evaluation

We support our NHS partners to become research-active, widening research participation and embedding research and pragmatic evaluation to improve health and care. Our team’s ability to draw on research and evaluation expertise from a wide range of disciplines and academic partners enables us to respond quickly and flexibly to requests for support.
