Research partners and collaborators
To ensure research and dissemination activities are relevant to those who deliver and receive health services, PRIME Centre Wales works with the following groups to ensure they are involved in prioritising, designing, conducting, interpreting and disseminating research:
- Patients and members of the public e.g. SUCCESS service user group, Involving People network
- Social Care Services e.g. nursing and care homes
- Third Sector organisations e.g. British Lung Foundation, Age Cymru, Home-Start UK
- Industry and commercial partners e.g. South East Wales Academic Health Science Partnership (SEWHASP)
PRIME Centre Wales is also linking in with other Health and Care Research Wales’ infrastructure organisations including trials units (South East Wales Trials Unit (SEWTU), North Wales Organisation for Randomised Trials in Health (NWORTH), and Swansea Trials Unit), other research centres and units and the Welsh Health Economic Support Service. The Research Design and Coordination Service (RDCS) of the Swansea Trials Unit (STU) is specifically funded to support Welsh Ambulance Service Trust Research and Development (WAST).
