Centre for Clinical and Care Research

Northern Care Alliance’s Centre for Clinical and Care Research (CCR) provides a foundation for nurses, midwives, Allied Health Professionals, Pharmacists and Healthcare Scientists (NMAPH) to gain the skills and confidence to become research leaders.

Working with our academic partners (including The University of Manchester and University of Salford), we are developing training opportunities that support a culture in which NMAPHs consider the application of research and innovation to be a core component of all roles, contributing to the development of a culture of continuous improvement. A key ambition is to develop a cadre of clinical academic NMAPHs within the trust.

The centre’s three-year plan aims to achieve four main objectives:

  • Talent spotting
  • Mentoring and supporting existing and developing researchers
  • Providing research skills development
  • Creating research career pathways
