Community Research Award

Research Team win Community Research Award

The Research Department had four separate nominations shortlisted at this year’s Greater Manchester Clinical Research Awards, where clinical research staff from Greater Manchester Hospital Trusts and GPs surgeries celebrated excellence in health care.

Congratulations to our Core Research Team who won the Best Contribution to Community Research Award. The team were rewarded for all their hard work in creating opportunities for increased numbers of patients, from all populations, to get involved in research across a variety of settings, including taking research out of the hospital to share the benefits across the extended community trust.

The team also picked up three runner’s up awards. The VTE Research Team for Best Research Debut, and Alison Loftus, R&D Manager and Emma McKenna, Research Nurse in the Outstanding Contribution to Research Category.

Chief Operating Officer of the Clinical Research Network: Greater Manchester, Debbie Vinsun, said: “Clinical research provides the evidence we need to improve treatments for patients, and having a strong research culture helps to create a strong health service. By providing more opportunities for patients to consider research alongside their other treatment options, we can contribute towards a healthier Greater Manchester. The research awards provide a great way to recognise and reward some of the people and teams who make health care research in our region so successful and dynamic.”
