Working with local partners from the Greater Manchester health and care system to provide co-produce new research, advise on the existing evidence base and evaluate new innovations,  to assist with Covid-19 recovery.


The global Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of the full spectrum of research disciplines from early discovery science though to  adoption and spread at scale;  applied health and care  research is more essential than ever.

We are working with local Greater Manchester and national partners to co-produce research aiming to understand and evaluate:

  • The current healthcare systems and responses to Covid-19;
  • The extent to which Covid-19 has disproportionally affected certain groups of society
  • New innovations and ways of working, as part of the Covid-19 recovery plans;
  • Lessons learnt, to inform new ways of future working.
