Academic Health Science Centres are designated by NHS England and NHS Improvement and the National Institute for Health Research for demonstrating excellence in health research, health education and patient care.
The foundation of our partnership is built around five outstanding organisations:
- Newcastle University
- Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
- Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust
- Newcastle City Council
- Academic Health Science Network for North East and North Cumbria
With a combined annual turnover in excess of 2 billion, over 35,000 employed staff, 600 researchers and a population of 3.2 million to serve. Our excellence is reflected in research, education, patient care and a proven track record in addressing regional inequalities.
As an Academic Health Science Centre, NHIP combines excellence in research, health education, patient care and improving population health.
Newcastle Health Innovation Partners works with a range of partners across the North East and North Cumbria, and beyond, supporting prevention, improving health outcomes and generating economic growth through collaborative partnerships and programmes.
In early 2021 NHIP will communicate with NHIP Partners and the broader community on the values and beliefs for NHIP to inform how we wish to behave and operate at all levels of the partnership. These core values may include:
- Serve the citizen
- Mutual trust
- Let go for the wider benefit
- Listen and evolve together
- Go where no one else has gone
- Show how it should be done
