Wednesday 13th March 2019

NIHR Leeds CRF Senior Research Nurses Sally Pearson and Heather Rostron (pictured with Dr Heather Iles-Smith, Head of Nursing for LTHT Research & Innovation) have been included among a select group of 70 people chosen from across the country to undertake the 70@70 National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Senior Nurse and Midwife Research Leader Programme.

This three-year fellowship, intended as a new way of championing research to improve patient care, will further embed a research active culture at LTHT, as well as informing research priorities at LTHT, and encouraging and supporting innovation.  This fantastic achievement will make a significant contribution to research delivery across the Trust.
