The NIHR Greater Manchester Patient Safety Research Collaboration (NIHR GM PSRC) is led by researchers who are internationally and nationally recognised for their work improving the safety of health and social care. PhD students work alongside us, gaining experience to become patient safety leaders of the future.
We work together with a team that includes communications professionals, a public and community engagement and involvement manager, an operations lead, and people providing admin support.
