The R&D Department has been offering training for many years to NHS staff. Due to its popularity and demand the training has developed even further to cover a number of areas to reflect changes within NHS research and development. This has been acknowledged by Health Education Yorkshire and Humber (LETb) who continue to fund our programme each year.
