Research and Development

We undertake a wide range of research and service development work.

All presentations and publications arising from our development work can be found on our publications and presentations pages.

Please contact the corresponding author if you would like more information about any of the published work.
The department strongly believes that clinical academic careers drive innovation and improvement within healthcare. We encourage and support staff who wish to undertake clinical academic careers,  either through National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded research fellowships (NIHR Training Programmes) or other means.
