Newcastle Academic Health Partners

A new partnership which harnesses world-class expertise will ensure patients in the North East will benefit sooner from new treatments, diagnostics and prevention strategies.


Bringing together Newcastle Hospitals and Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trusts with Newcastle University, the newly-formed ‘Newcastle Academic Health Partners’ will deliver world-class healthcare through collaborative scientific research, education and patient care and mobilise the collective capabilities of the three organisations in support of economic growth.

The alliance will focus on delivering scientific advances that improve physical and mental health in common age-related chronic diseases, such as dementia and musculoskeletal disease.  It will also specialise in improving understanding and treatment of cancer, diseases that affect the brain and those affecting children.

Working across the two trusts, Newcastle Academic Health Partners will translate clinical research into practice developing improved diagnostic, prevention and treatment strategies as well as an innovative health education programme.
