NIHR CLAHRC Wessex website gets a boost

3 July 2017

We have just spent the last three months working on improving our website to make it easier to find what you want and making it smoother to use.

Managed by Yvette Melia and assisted by 3 Men Squared, Yvette has gone through every page and area to try to improve the way we show off our great research.

We must also thank our amazing trainees/PhD students for allowing us to film them explaining their research work.

Even though we're only 3 years old, we hope you will agree that after our web facelift the site is looking much better... Below is an example of before and after... 


Overloaded A&Es – Have we got this all wrong? Dr Brad Keogh

Why do we need evidence? At a time when the NHS has limited resources and increases in demand for its services, it seems prudent to only make changes to the service once you are reasonably certain that what you might do may be in the interest of the patients and staff in the system. By enforcing top-down changes to services with little or no evidence of benefit to patients or staff we are using more of this precious resource for no clear benefit. As an engineer coming into the healthcare sector several years ago to do data analytics, it has always surprised me how few decisions in the management of NHS services are made with robust quantitative analysis. It is also a contrast to the evidence based decision making and protocols within medicine. My thought for you: “why can’t we have evidence based service management as well as evidence based medicine?“ read blog >

Patient and public involvement is vital to the success of the CLAHRC.

We would be pleased to hear from you if you are interested in becoming involved in our research and implementation.

How can I get involved?
