Annual Review 2021-22: Health Integration Team updates

Health Integration Teams (HITs) are cross-organisational, inter-disciplinary groups of health professionals, academics, patients and the public that look at particular health issues or conditions.

These pioneering teams are started by passionate experts in their field, and accredited by our Research & Innovation Steering Group.

Scroll down to read updates from our HIT Directors on what they’ve achieved this year.
