The NIHR Health Informatics Collaborative (HIC) brings together all NHS trusts with NIHR Biomedical Research Centres (BRCs) and their partner trust to make NHS clinical data more readily available to NHS trusts, researchers, industry and the wider NHS community. The collaborative comprises NHS trusts that are interested in collaborating with other NHS trusts on translational research projects.
