The Centre for Research and Innovation in Care Sciences (CRICS) has built a number of strong collaborative links through research and consultancy particularly in areas such as Health Economics, Genomics Policy and Intellectual Disability.
CRICS has developed close links with NHS Trusts, Professional Bodies, and others in order to undertake research which is of relevance to practice, patient/client care and service provision, and helps to inform policy. We also have a number of consultant nurses currently working at the university.
We have collaborated with a number of organisations, the list of links to external websites below highlights some of our work with others.
