The NIHR Community Healthcare MedTech and In vitro Diagnostics Co-operative partners with commercial medical technology developers to ensure new concepts are rigorously evaluated, applicable in the NHS and have far-reaching clinical benefit. 

Hosted by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, we bring together experienced health researchers, end users, and clinical experts skilled in the development and evaluation of diagnostic tests.

The focus of our activities is on key NHS priorities and include home and community care, including GP surgeries, acute ambulatory care, out-of-hours care and home visits.

The initiative builds on the work of the NIHR Oxford Diagnostic Evidence Co-operative (2013 – 2017).
