Nurse-led research wins £1.2 million cash boost in Wales

Research into chronic conditions by nurses, midwives and allied health professionals in Wales will benefit from a £1.2 million cash injection, health ministers have announced.

The grant, co-funded by the Welsh Assembly and the Higher Education Funding Council Wales (HEFCW), has been awarded to Research Capacity Building Collaboration Wales (RCBC Wales), which coordinates a range of health research projects.

Professor Donna Mead, dean of the faculty of health sport and science at the University of Glamorgan and RCBC Wales coordinator, said: ‘The announcement of this additional funding illustrates the importance which the Welsh Assembly and HEFCW places on ensuring that there are sufficient numbers of nurses, midwives and allied health professionals who are trained in research.

‘Individuals from these professions provide the largest amount of healthcare and it is absolutely essential that the evidence base exists to underpin the services which they provide.’
