Lambeth Health Determinants Research Collaborative HDRC

“Lambeth Council has been awarded funding over the next five years for Lambeth Health Determinants Research Collaborative HDRC. The funding has been awarded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) to set up pioneering Health Determinants Research Collaborations (HDRCs). Lambeth is one of 30 new HDRCs nationally – you can read more about NIHR’s ambitions here.

NIHR HDRCs enable local authorities to become more research-active, embedding a culture of evidence-based decision making. This will support Lambeth Council to address the wider determinants of health and health inequalities.

Lambeth HDRCs vision is to understand and act on the causes of health inequalities in Lambeth. We will develop an open and participative research collaboration which generates new knowledge, identifies, and applies existing research to tackle the causes of inequalities and improve our residents health and wellbeing. This will be underpinned by research, data, evidence which involves local people and informs decisions made by Lambeth council and its partners and is delivered within an integrated health and care system.”
