Making a difference

Our work aims to make a real difference to the health and wellbeing of people and communities right across the North East and North Cumbria.

We particularly want our work to have a real impact on the lives and life chances of those who need it the most.

Putting research into practice

Our applied research is focussed on solving specific health and social care issues and finding solutions that can be put into practice, quickly.

Our Implementation Strategy sets out how we will carry out applied research that responds to the health and care needs of people in the North East and North Cumbria. It also describes how we will translate the research evidence we develop, so it can be used in the real world to make a difference and impact.
