The co-design research process undertaken October 2020 – March 2021 under the auspices of the NENC NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) forms the cornerstone of all programme activity now being developed and implemented within our North East and North Cumbria (NENC) Deep End network. You can read more about this co-design research here. This research also generated unique insights into the experiences and impact of Covid-19 for those living and working in the Deep End, which you can read more about here.
We now have active research projects supporting across our NENC Deep End work programmes. We are continually building upon our strong research-practice collaborations, with the aim of ensuring all activity within our NENC Deep End network:
- Is informed by available evidence of ‘what works and why’ to address health inequalities in primary care
- Builds upon the existing evidence-base in an applied way that involves our Deep End practitioners and patients
