MAHSC is a partnership between The Uni- versity of Manchester, Central Manches- ter University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester Mental Health and So- cial Care Trust, Salford Primary Care Trust, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foun- dation Trust. The MAHSC vision is “To be a leading centre nationally and globally for the uptake of innovative applied health re- search and education into healthcare”.
Manchester combines excellence in academia, clinical service delivery, re- search management and education, with a population that has some of the poorest health in the country. The health partners in Manchester have worked together over ten years to realise the potential opportu- nities that this mix presents and to deliver health and economic gains to the popula- tion. This led to the launch of the MAHSC in June 2008 and its designation as one of the UK’s five AHSCs by the Department of Health in March 2009.
