We can help to transform research questions into research proposals. We have links with a diverse range of professionals, including clinicians and academics, and we can offer vast experience in research development. We provide support in the following key areas:

  • Methodology
  • The feasibility of delivering your project within a NHS setting
  • Facilitation of key partnerships to promote successful delivery
  • Securing funding and project collaborators

Case study

Examples of our work include:
