Making a difference
The NIHR Applied Research Collaboration Yorkshire and Humber supports people-powered research that aims to tackle inequalities and improve health and well-being for our communities. With the help of our Implementation arm, the Yorkshire and Humber Improvement Academy, we have supported the adoption and spread of evidence that emerged from our ARC, speeding up the transformation of our health and care system to support the delivery of improved outcomes for patients and our communities.
