Wider engagement network

Wider engagement network           

We will communicate with the health community, including the public, across the NW Coast area through diverse means. A communication strategy will be developed and we will establish an ‘Engage with CLAHRC NWC network’ supported through our website and social media.

Drawing on public volunteers involved in our work we will establish and support a group of Public Engagement Champions who will disseminate information about the CLAHRC NWC, helping to attract new public volunteers. 

Engaging with industry

The CLAHRC NWC will work with its Partners, including the North West Coast Academic Health Science Network (NWC AHSN) to develop a strategy for industry engagement. We will seek industry representatives to join our Steering Board and Theme management teams will seek opportunities to engage industry in their programmes. We will include industry engagement as a standard item on our Steering Board and Management Team agendas and ensure that industry engagement is an explicit focus of our communication and dissemination strategies.

Engaging NIHR Funded Infrastructure

We will work closely with the new NIHR Research Infrastructure during and after the transition to the new structures.

The Director of the NIHR Local Clinical Research Network (LCRN) will be a member of the CLAHRC NWC Steering Board and direct links will also be established with the Themes.
