Senior Research Nurses

The Senior Research Nurses are responsible for the line management, training and supervision of research staff across a number of clinical areas in the Trust.  The role is to ensure that staff are managed and support in the workplace and are appropriately trained to evidence they are competent to carry out their research work.  The aim is to achieve high quality research which is patient focussed ensuring the safety of patients within clinical trials and contributing to high quality data.

Research staff manage both NIHR portfolio and non-portfolio studies with a variety of interventional and non-interventional studies to achieve a balanced portfolio across the Trust and the goal is to have a flexible workforce who are able to work on projects across a number of clinical specialities where the need arises.

There are currently research teams in the majority of the clinical areas across our  Trust and welcome approaches from all disciplines.

Laura Griffiths/Kate Howard covers: Gastroenterology, Cardiology, Obs & Gynae, Renal, Respiratory/CF, Scarborough Team
