This has been acknowledged by Health Education Yorkshire and the Humber who continue to fund our programme each year.

The R&D training & skills programme is offered free of charge to all NHS staff and those from partner agencies working in health and social care within the Health Education Yorkshire and the Humber region.  We also welcome staff from outside our boundary on all of our courses.
