The NHIP Strategy Board meets quarterly to set direction, prioritise objectives and ensure the delivery of NHIP outputs.

The board is chaired by Graeme Chapman and is comprised of representatives from across our partnership and NIHR infrastructure.

The NHIP Strategy Board is underpinned by two sub-committees:

• Research and Innovation Strategy Group

• Education & Training Group

The sub-committees bring partner organisations together to develop and deliver activity in their respective areas to drive forward NHIP’s goals and ambitions.

The Board is also supported by an Operations Group. The NHIP Operations Group comprises key leaders from each of the partner organisations to advise on the operational delivery of NHIP activity across the partnership.


NHIP has an Advisory Board to provide independent specialist advice. The Advisory Board meets annually and is made up of key local leaders who can provide advice, guidance and challenge to ensure NHIP is able to meet its ambitions.
