Research Success

The NHS Forth Valley Research and Development Committee hosted a very successful Research Day in the Learning Centre at Forth Valley Royal Hospital. Speakers included Ricky Verrall, Head of the Chief Scientist Office, and Raymond Hamill, R&D Manager from NHS Lanarkshire. Delegates learned about the national and local research landscape and practical sessions focused on developing projects, research governance, intellectual property and the role of the research nurse. A number of excellent posters were submitted and were subsequently displayed in Forth Valley Royal. The day concluded with a session for local senior school students, who came along to learn about health service career opportunities involving research.
