The National Institute for Health Research Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care North West Coast (NIHR CLAHRC NWC) brings together NHS organisations, local authorities and academic leaders from the Universities of Liverpool, Lancaster and Central Lancashire, to accelerate the translation of research findings into service improvements and maximise the potential for applied health research within the partner organisations to improve health and reduce health inequalities.
