Pegasus Health Research Advisory Group

Pegasus Health recognises the importance of research in ensuring clinical quality and safety in primary care. 

We recognise that participating in and supporting health research is fundamental to meeting our purpose, role, and strategy, and addressing health inequities.  

Apply for research support

Who can apply? 

We welcome researchers from universities and organisations who align with our values, to collaborate with to achieve better health outcomes. 

Our values are that we demonstrate manaakitanga in everything we do, are inclusive, act with integrity, connect, and strive for equitable health outcomes. 

Our decisions reflect our commitment to patient centred care and equitable health outcomes. We ensure our approaches are safe, effective, and evidence based. As partners in an integrated healthcare system, we prioritise continuous improvement, data-driven strategies, clinical leadership, and independent advocacy.

We are committed to Te Tiriti o Waitangi, tikanga, and equity of outcomes. Consequently, we will also consider the impact of Māori data sovereignty on research. We have a responsibility to research and to report on ethnicity data (Māori, Pasifika, Asian and in comparisons with European), closing the equity gap and recommendations on approaches to address inequitable health outcomes.

Our priority areas 

  • Health equity 
  • Screening and vaccination 
  • Appointment, diagnosis, referral, treatment and health outcome timeframes 
  • Access barriers to primary care 
  • Oral health promotion 
  • Family harm prevention 
  • Cervical cancer: screening and HPV vaccination 
  • Equally Well: physical health equity for people who experience serious mental health and addiction issues. 

How does it work? 

Researchers are encouraged to complete the online form with necessary documentation, especially the ethics approval. After the form and documents are received, the Pegasus Health Research Advisory Group (PHRAG) Convenor will contact the researcher to discuss the research requirements. 

PHRAG meets every six weeks to assess new research requests. The group’s decision is conveyed to the researcher after the meeting. If additional information is needed, the convenor will contact the researcher. The turnaround time for a decision is a maximum of six weeks. 

PHRAG requests potential researchers to be aware of the time and cost to support research.
