Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS joins NHSA health science alliance

Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust (TEWV) has joined the Northern Health Science Alliance (NHSA), paving the way for increased research collaboration and innovation opportunities for the trust.

TEWV is the second mental health trust to join the NHSA, which brings together 24 research-active NHS Trusts and universities across the North and the four Northern AHSNs.

The NHSA works closely with its members to promote the North’s thriving life science sector to increase awareness of and drive investment into the Northern Powerhouse.

As an associate member, TEWV will benefit from a range of opportunities through the NHSA’s joint research partnerships, advocacy, business development and international and national programmes.

Professor Joe Reilly, clinical director for research and development at TEWV, said: “I’m delighted that Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust is joining the Northern Health Science Alliance as an Associate Member

“As a mental health trust, we have a great deal to gain from the NHSA’s national and international reach, and its success in bringing together academic and clinical collaborations to deliver high-quality research and innovation to the North. 

“Together with acute hospital colleagues, we hope to help bridge the gap between physical and mental health, and improve the mental health and well-being of people in our regions and beyond.”

TEWV provides a range of mental health and learning disability services across a large part of Northern England (County Durham, Teesside and North Yorkshire).
