As part of the National Institute for Health Research, we use the skills, knowledge and expertise of researchers, health and social care professionals, managers, commissioners and patients to conduct high quality research projects to find new ways of improving healthcare. Our aim is to ensure the results of the research are translated quickly and effectively into benefits for patients, the wider NHS and social care.

    & CLAHRC

    The NHS Long Term Plan builds upon all the quality improvement work that continues to be developed by individuals working across the health and social care sector.

    Professor Derek Bell OBE, Director of NIHR CLAHRC Northwest London, remarked:

    “I welcome the NHS Long Term Plan’s balanced portfolio of service improvement that reflects the needs of the population and 
    individuals. The focus on prevention and mental health is also welcome. NIHR CLAHRC Northwest London has been working on many of the areas highlighted in the NHS plan including:
    • Improving rapid access to heart failure nurses so that more patients with heart failure, who are not on a cardiology ward, will receive specialist care and advice: Development of the Heart Failure Project
    • Improving early diagnosis in the community: testing for Atrial Fibrillation Screening Project
    • Improving Mental Health Services: SHINE Project (improving the physical health of people with serve mental illness)
    • Supporting patients with alcohol dependence in hospital: Alcohol Care Bundle Project
    • Supporting parents whose babies are on the neonatal unit: Better Use of Data to improve parent Satisfaction (BUDS) project (to improve communication between parents and healthcare professionals in neonatal units)."

    & Breathlessness


    With today's release of the NHS Long Term Plan we'd like to give you some of the thoughts from our team.

    Professor Martin Cowieacademic lead for our Breathlessness theme, who's work on our Atrial Fibrillation and Heart Failure projects, will have a large part to play in developing and leading this long term plan.

    “The NHS long term plan identifies where the biggest wins can be made right along the care pathway: identifying people at high risk of cardiovascular events such as stroke or heart attack, giving GPs better access to the key diagnostic tests to speed up diagnosis and appropriate care, improving access to specialists when patients are admitted to hospital with heart failure, and increasing access to rehabilitation to improve quality of life after heart attack or heart failure. Now that the key areas have been identified, local services need to focus on these issues to deliver improved care and experience of care for those living in England. NW London CLAHRC has been active in all of these areas, and the new national plan adds impetus to its work”.
