NIHR CLAHRC for South Yorkshire 2008 - 2013

National Institute for Health Research, Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care for South Yorkshire (CLAHRC SY)/ 

A five year pilot programme to translate healthcare research into healthcare practice, with a specific focus on the self-management of long-term conditions. 

Our main funder was the National Institute for Health Research.

Our remit was to undertake high quality applied research, translate research into practice, and increase our partner organisations' capacity to do more of the same.

CLAHRC SY had four core values that we endeavoured to adhere to:

•  Building Collaborations and Co-production 

•  Addressing Inequalities in Health

•  Capacity Building

•  The joint engagement in and ownership of CLAHRC by our partners.

NIHR CLAHRC Yorkshire and Humber 2014 - 2018

National Institute for Health Research, Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and care, Yorkshire and Humber (NIHR CLAHRC YH)

Our vision: To undertake high quality applied research and evidence based implementation that is responsive to, and in partnership with, our collaborating organisation, patient, carers and the public. The outcome being an improvement in both the health and wealth of the population of Yorkshire and Humber

The CLAHRC YH Principles are: 

Engagement, we believe that meaningful engagement delivers successful collaboration that has an impact. Through communicating our passion for the work we do, we will develop ownership of the CLAHRC YH within individuals and organisational partners.

Co-production, we believe that all people have a right, if they wish, to be involved in the organisation and delivery of health and health research. Through co-production we will support the key stakeholders in our work to contribute to the development of better knowledge, healthcare services and products.

Capacity building, we believe that people are innovative and if empowered can reach their potential. Through our capacity building work we will support individuals, teams and organisations to increase their research activity, and through this, the health and wealth of Yorkshire and Humber.

Addressing health inequalities, we believe that everyone has an equal right to be as healthy as they can be and have equal access to healthcare. Through implementing our Health Inequalities strategy we will strive to reduce inequalities.
