About the Centre
Practice development is an internationally recognised approach for:
- Transforming care and services so that they are person-centred, safe and effective
- Creating good places to work
- Ensuring that the best evidence and research informs everyday practice.
We specialise in large scale participatory research projects and with very well developed partnerships across a wide variety of public, private and voluntary sectors. The Centre is able to draw upon the expertise of a wide range of experts to test out ideas, promote application of research in practice, and generate expert opinion rapidly. This means that we can build social capital quickly and scale up ideas. Many of our outcomes have been adopted by NHS England and NHS Improvement to improve services, systems and workforce development.
