Fuse Quarterly Research Meeting

Wednesday 22 January 2020 | 10am - 3pm

Northumbria University, City Campus, Newcastle


This Fuse QRM, co-organised with the North of England Commissioning Support Unit and the Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust, brings together academic researchers and practitioners with an interest in mental health, within the framework of the North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care System Mental Health work stream.


What will I gain from this?

The event will provide an overview of existing mental health research, policy and practice in the region; identify cross-cutting themes and needs for future research and collaborations; and explore structural opportunities for developing these collaborations and research projects.


Who is it for?

Anyone and everyone who is interested in mental health research collaborations, including the public (children, young people and families).


Programme and registration will be available on the ‘Events’ page of the Fuse website.

Date: Tuesday 3rd March 2019

Timings: 9.30am - 4.30pm

Venue: Rheged, Redhills, Penrith, Cumbria, CA11 0DQ


In a place far, far away, a long time ago, everyone had time to do their work and manage their relationships. Time to care and time to be themselves.

Lack of time is now one of our most pressing issues!

Yet the workload increases. Our population is ageing; the things we can do to help people are ever more complex and hard to manage. We need to be able to do more, do it better and take less time doing it!

LOC 2020 will help us with this challenge. A range of workshops and learning events to help us manage time better, save time, reduce waste and create better systems.

Do our work differently; be happier at work; get better outcomes and a better experience for our patients – the Force will be with us!


Save the day and book your place now on our dedicated LOC in the Lakes 2020: Time Wars event page!
