Research is central to ensuring services are effective and that new treatments and ways of delivering care continue to be identified that enable recovery and prevention, reduce disease burden, improve quality and increase productivity.

We believe that the health and wellbeing of the people we serve and the services we provide can be significantly improved through supporting, enabling and participating in the development of the health research evidence base.
