This is an integrated single entry point for business and organisations to engage with the University on collaborative research and workforce development. Our aim is to operationalise the 'bench to bedside' research pathway by providing a cross-sectoral collaborative framework for research development.
The CRH is a regionwide strategic initiative designed to link service perspectives, professional interests and facilities within partner NHS Trusts to internationally renowned research expertise in Lancaster University. The Hub supports the growth of high-quality, locally-led research to underpin improved healthcare.
We are distinctive in combining excellence in work based learning with research excellence. We excel at 'making research and learning count' through application in the workplace. We work in partnership to develop people in line with work agendas. Our programmes are not only academically rigorous but also highly relevant and useful. We have an exemplary track record in delivering real business outcomes through CPD - the continuing professional development of people.
The Faculty hosts the North West Research Design Service, which provides methodological advice and guidance to NHS staff working on the design and development of research projects. The Clinical Research Hub and the NW RDS work closely together in the development and support of research initiatives across the region.
