The NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) West Midlands is a five-year initiative (2019-2024) funded by the National Institute of Health Research with matched funds provided by local health and social services. Our mission is to create lasting and effective partnerships across health and social care organisations, and universities (Birmingham, Keele and Warwick) in order to improve care services across the West Midlands. Our work builds on research conducted by both the NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) for West Midlands and the CLAHRC Birmingham and Black Country pilot.
We are one of 15 ARCs across England, part of a £135 million investment by the NIHR to improve the health and care of patients and the public.
