  • Fostering integration of research with health and social care delivery.
  • Contributing to a regional network to foster communication and collaborations between public health researchers and practitioners across organisations outside the NHS
  • Further develop partnerships with researchers in the University of Portsmouth and Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust
  • Expanding the local and national public health NIHR portfolio
