The Trust has been awarded additional research funding from the Department of Health and the local research network.
For the first time the Trust has been awarded research capability funding of £20k from the Department of Health following our good performance in recruiting patients in research. This will be used to support the growth of research across the Trust.
The Greater Manchester Comprehensive Local Research Network, which already provides us with funding, is providing a further £32k for a research nurse and administrative support. This will be for supporting recruitment to existing studies and expanding our research in areas which do not currently take part.
