Research, Innovation and Clinical Effectiveness

Research, Innovation and Clinical Effectiveness

The NHS constitution requires that research is seen as core NHS business and states that every patient should be offered the opportunity to engage in research. High quality research underpins advances in healthcare and should be used to influence the commissioning of evidence based services across the health, social care and the voluntary sector.

The Pennine Lancashire Research, Innovation and Clinical Effectiveness Strategy sets out the importance of research and 
importance of research and innovation within the national and local contexts. These include key national drivers such as 
The Five Year Forward View (2014-15-2018-19), the Quality, Innovation Performance and Prevention (QIPP) agenda and locally the 
Pennine Lancashire Health and Wellbeing Principles and priorities (2017-21).
