Independent Board Members to champion research across NHS Wales

Health boards and NHS organisations in Wales have appointed one of their non-executive directors to be the voice of research and development on their Boards, as part of a new initiative by Health and Care Research Wales.

Increasing the visibility of research and embedding it within all NHS services is essential to drive improvement, as well as ensuring that all patients have access to the latest treatments and high quality, evidence-based care, including prevention.

As part of Wales’ commitment to embedding research across the NHS, Chief Medical Officer Dr Frank Atherton has asked all NHS organisations to nominate an Independent Board Member to champion research as part of their wider portfolio of responsibilities.

A day to celebrate the proud achievements of support and delivery staff

On Tuesday 21 March, Health and Care Research Wales’ Support and Delivery staff came together to celebrate research and strengthen relationships across Wales and beyond, attending their first face-to-face event since 2019.

Over 200 delegates gathered for the event, including NHS research delivery teams, Specialty Leads, Support and Delivery Centre and Welsh Government staff, to celebrate the vital role they play in making a difference in health and care research across Wales.

Under the theme of ‘developing research support and delivery for resilience and growth’, a range of speakers and poster presentations provided opportunities for attendees to share best practice, participate in workshops and gain valuable insights into research support and delivery innovation.

Dr Nicola Williams, Director of Support and Delivery at Health and Care Research Wales, chaired the event and opened the first session, discussing the outlook for Support and Delivery in 2023 and progress on the UK vision for Clinical Research Delivery.
