Its role is to represent the unique tripartite - service, teaching and research - interests of UK University Hospital Trusts in partnership with other national bodies. The high quality teaching and research conducted within these institutions allows the quality of care provided to the patients they treat to be at the forefront of best practice throughout the UK.
