Aberystwyth University has launched a new Centre for Excellence in Rural Health Research.

 

It will work closely with the Mid Wales Healthcare Collaborative and Hywel Dda University Health Board to address some of the unique challenges of delivering healthcare in rural areas.

 

Research

 

The centre will also promote and support an attractive research environment for clinical staff in partner health organisations.

 

Dr Rachel Rahman, the centre’s director, said: “Delivery of healthcare to rural populations is challenging, not only in the UK but in developed and developing countries around the world.

 

Unique challenges

 

“Attempting to address the unique challenges of rural healthcare through the simplistic extension of urban approaches is not effective and rarely accounts for the challenges of local geographies, cultural nuances, and economies of scale.

 

“The Centre for Excellence in Rural Health Research at Aberystwyth University will maximise on its location, embedded in the rural community of Mid-West Wales, to deliver innovative and impactful research which informs the provision of rural healthcare for current and future generations.”

 

Benefits

 

Steve Moore, chief executive of Hywel Dda University Health Board, said he was delighted to be a part of such an exciting new project.

 

“We know the challenges facing rural healthcare delivery are many and varied and together with our partners we will be taking a resourceful, innovative approach to find sustainable and lasting solutions that are of real benefit to rural communities.”
