NIHR ARC East of England launched 1 October & our new website will launch in early 2020.

Our Manifesto

The NIHR ARC East of England is a five-year collaboration between Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, and the Universities of Cambridge, East Anglia, Hertfordshire and Essex along with other NHS Trusts, Local Authorities, Regional Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs), patient-led organisations, charities, and industry partners across the region. We aim to improve care by undertaking applied research which supports frontline NHS and Social Care staff to change practice and investigate whether care and treatments are effective and provide good value.

We will:

  • Undertake focused research projects in four ‘Populations in Focus’, areas identified as having high health needs in our region. These ‘PIFs’ are Great Yarmouth and Waveney; Peterborough and Fenland; Stevenage; and Thurrock

  • Nationally co-lead applied research with the NIHR ARC South London in mental health, and palliative and end of life care

  • Effectively engage with our communities across the region

  • Facilitate the implementation of research findings into practice

Forward view

“Our new applied research collaboration, the NIHR ARC East of England, has been eighteen months in preparation so it is exciting to be launching the new programmes. We shall be addressing key questions for health and social care through research. The focus on implementation means the ARC should be well placed to make a positive difference to the health and wellbeing of people in the region. Our plans to form lasting partnerships with communities and stakeholders within the four populations-in-focus groups, represents a fresh challenge but this will increase the impact of the ARC in communities with greatest need. Our discoveries may have local origins but widespread relevance and we look forward to the next five years and beyond”
