Each NIHR ARC is made up of local providers of NHS services, local providers of care services, NHS commissioners, local authorities, universities, private companies and charities. These collaborations work together to conduct high quality, generalisable, applied health and care research that addresses the specific health or care issues in their region.
NIHR ARCs also act to close the second translational gap and increase the rate at which research findings are implemented into practice.
The 15 ARCs work collaboratively to address national research priorities, with individual ARCs providing national leadership in their areas.
The 15 ARCs are:
|NIHR ARC North West London||NIHR ARC East Midlands||NIHR ARC Yorkshire and Humber|
|NIHR ARC West Midlands||NIHR ARC South London||NIHR ARC Greater Manchester|
|NIHR ARC East of England||NIHR ARC Wessex||NIHR ARC West|
|NIHR ARC North West Coast||NIHR ARC North Thames||NIHR ARC Oxford and Thames Valley|
|NIHR ARC Kent, Surrey and Sussex||NIHR ARC North East and North Cumbria|
