Collaborative Research Standing Committee
The Working Party was formed in April 2006 when a meeting of BIHS members actively engaged in research was called to discuss collaborative prijects. A small group evolved to form the Working Party and a Research Network was established to provide a wider forum for discussion.
The Working Party re-grouped in 2014 to widen the boundaries of BIHS involvement in national research into hypertension and cardiovascular disease.
