Report of the Director of Public Health


Consideration has been given to the Council submitting a final stage application for the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Health Determinates Research Collaboration (HDRC) initiative to bid for up to £5 million over five years.






That the Council and Newcastle University final stage bid for up to £5 million as set out in the report, to host the HDRC over five years be approved.




The above decision has been made because a successful bid will enable the Council to become a centre of excellence in research locally, regionally, and nationally, providing a long lasting culture of high quality evidence based decision making, cocreated with the communities and people that have the greatest need,  all for the purpose of tackling inequality and addressing the wider determinates of health, in order to significantly improve health outcomes for all our residents.
