The Community Healthcare MIC team would be excited to hear from practicing healthcare professionals working in community settings who are interested to become involved in our work.
- Have you identified a particular area of diagnostic clinical need in your context of work or a shortfall in an existing clinical pathway which could be addressed through the deployment of a current or novel technology?
- Do you have any ideas for new diagnostic tests which we could develop and evaluate in collaboration?
- Would you be willing to test out exciting new validated technologies in your clinical setting?
Please contact Dr Philip Turner, the Manager of the NIHR Community Healthcare MIC, if you would like discuss the work of the MIC further or if you would like to become involved.
