On 6th June 2017, two major health organisations the Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC) and the Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh (RCPE) have announced that they will collaborate to drive better innovation and understanding in medicine.
MAHSC and RCPE will work together to deliver a programme of clinical and academic learning, training and research in the north of England.
MAHSC aims to provide patients and clinicians with fast access to the latest innovations that improve the quality and effectiveness of patient care. MAHSC is a partnership between the University of Manchester and six highly rated National Health Service (NHS) organisations in Greater Manchester.
As part of the cooperation, there will be new opportunities to share knowledge between the these two organisations including sharing the college’s educational programme, seminars on present health topics and gathering opinions together on local health and other related topics.
The work have been started to develop a 2 year programme of clinical and academic events for the first RCPE Manchester activities that will include a series of RCPE Evening Medical Updates to kick off in summer this year.
The president of the RCPE, Professor Derek Bell said that the college has a long history of developing standards of medical care and training in order to provide the best possible care to patients.
He added that the RCPE Manchester would progress innovation and understanding in medicine by sharing their expertise and knowledge and working together to drive forward the best standards in healthcare.
The director of MAHSC, Professor Ian Greer said that the new undertaking came at an exciting time for Manchester as the organisation looked to capitalise on the opportunities brought about by the city’s devolved health and social care budget and multi-million-pound investment in clinical research and associated infrastructure.
