Our Sites

The Discovery Research Platform for Medical Humanities reaches beyond Durham University with community, clinical and creative partnerships in three physical sites.

Change begins by embracing new connections and reaching beyond the University.

Our three Sites are spaces which facilitate the exchange of knowledge and ideas between people with lived experience, clinicians and creative professionals.
