Healthcare and translation

We work closely with the National Health Service (NHS) and other healthcare delivery stakeholders to build innovation capacity within clinical research and practice and promote uptake and dissemination of new medical breakthroughs.

Our key aim is to turn scientific discovery into better health for patients and populations - and to get this done as quickly and efficiently as possible.

To achieve this the College has established a number of integrated healthcare partnerships and has been highly successful in competing for major funding and external designations for our portfolio of translational infrastructure.

The information below provides an introduction to our NIHR Biomedical Research Centre, Academic Health Science Centre and Academic Health Science Network - the organisational partnerships we have established with our NHS partners to provide the framework and collaborative culture to drive and disseminate improvement in healthcare.

We also support the NHS in technology transfer, ensuring that innovations from our hospitals can be translated into impact across the NHS and wider health and social care sectors.
