Partnership and collaboration is at the very heart of our work.

The ARC North East and North Cumbria is a region-wide and responsive network of clinicians, public health and social care practitioners, commissioners, voluntary sector providers, researchers, and other professionals – all focussed on applied research and innovation to prevent illness, improve care, promote health and reduce health inequalities.

As a collaborative group, we work together and with our communities, to design, deliver and implement research that helps to achieve better fairer health and care at all ages and in all places.

We also work closely with regional and national research organisations, including other NIHR ARCs and NIHR bodies.

We are open to new partnerships and welcome the opportunity to work with any individuals or organisations who are keen to get involved.
