Research & Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at GMMH. It is a key part of the NHS constitution and a strategic priority for the Trust. 

We are proud to be one of the top NHS Trusts for mental health and dementia research, and we are committed to making sure our research matters. We want to make sure that our staff, service users and carers have every opportunity to take part in and benefit from research and innovation.  

We work closely with staff and service users across the Trust to achieve this, as well as with our partners including the University of Manchester, NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre and Clinical Research Facility, Health Innovation Manchester, among others.
