About us

We accelerate improvements in health and care through research, innovation and training, for the benefit of patients and wider society.

Our thriving and growing regional partnership includes Integrated Care Boards, top universities and leading NHS organisations, and offers excellence in research, innovation and health and care education.

Our regional approach makes us unique. We create a culture for collaboration which makes it easier for individuals and organisations to work together, forming partnerships which improve population health and patient outcomes, both in Wessex and beyond. 

Together, we improve the Wessex region’s collective ability to address the challenges facing our health and care system, increasing the generation of collaborative and interdisciplinary research, and speeding the development and adoption of innovation at scale.

  • Bring together world-leading experts to tackle health and care challenges
  • Support collaborations to generate synergy
  • Provide a trusted environment to nurture partnerships
  • Horizon scan for opportunities
