The Yorkshire and Humber ARC will be hosted within Bradford Institute for Health Research (BIHR), which is part of Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The funding will enable BIHR and partner organisations across Yorkshire and the Humber, including 44 NHS organisations, 15 Local Authorities and 10 universities, to prioritise research into a number of health issues including older people with frailty, healthy childhood, urgent care and mental ill health.
Director of Yorkshire and Humber ARC, Professor John Wright, of BIHR said: “We are delighted that the Yorkshire and Humber region has been awarded this important programme of applied research. Medical research can often seem remote from everyday life.
“Our ARC will support people-powered research that aims to improve health and well-being for our communities. Our themes of healthy childhood, mental health, older people and urgent care are the priorities that have been identified by our NHS partners and the public and will ensure our patients benefit from cutting-edge innovation.”
