Research and Innovation

We work with patients, hospitals, universities, industry and others to take the best new ideas from cutting-edge science, and use them to create new tests and treatments that benefit patients more quickly.

Over one million patients per year are cared for across our eight hospitals and community services, and we undertake research in a diverse range of clinical areas. Our patients are regularly the first-in-the-world to have the opportunity to trial new treatments through research, and even more are first in the UK.

Working with The University of Manchester, and other partners in the Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC), we have aligned our biomedical research strategy to focus our efforts on six areas, in which we are internationally recognised. Our research is supported by the National Institute for Health Research.
