The strengths of the WMC HIEC partnership

With its provider partnership and their influencing channels, WMC HIEC will raise the quality of health care through excellence in education and accelerating innovation from research to service"

WMC HIEC brings together expertise in research and evidence based practice, innovative educational provision, innovation in practice and quality improvement.

The WMC HIEC is hosted by the University of Birmingham and incorporates a large number of potential partners including NHS PCTs, Acute NHS Trusts, five universities, industrial, commercial and 3rd sector organisations covering Birmingham and the Black Country, Worcestershire and Herefordshire. It includes the UK’s largest Medical School and initial and post qualification education for a wide range of health and social care professionals.

In developing the WMC HIEC work streams we have established a wide network of partnership contacts. However we want to include anyone who is interested in contributing to this initiative. We have established a number of key contacts within the broader partnership and we encourage you to get in touch with your representative if you would like more information.
