At ARC East Midlands, we are committed to continuously improving both the quality of our research and the positive impact we have in our local communities and through our specialisms nationally.

As part of this commitment, we organised an independent external review led by a team of experts at the halfway mark of our current funding term. It took place earlier this month and we are certain that we benefit from this process. The panel members were complimentary about our work; we look forward to receiving the feedback.

Meanwhile, we have also been busy staging two webinar series. During May and June, we held research showcases to provide an opportunity for our colleagues and partners to learn about the work within our ARC themes. Over 240 people attended across all sessions, which were engaging and informative, and we were delighted to receive positive feedback.

Then, as part of our national ARC lead role in multiple long-term conditions (MTLC), we held an education webinar series which aimed to bridge the gap between the research and clinical management of people with MLTC. The interactive sessions led to discussions on future directions for education and research in this area. 

In this edition we also share details of our new research projects which started in April 2022. We look forward to seeing these projects through to successful completion and implementation. 

With very best wishes
