Department of Health - Annual Report

At NELFT R&D, we are proud that we are a Trust which has received the highest accolade from the Department of Health in terms of our standards of research, publication and training. We have maintained this high standard for the past three years and we hope to continue in this manner through supporting staff through teaching, training and research capability funding.

As part of the Annual Report we collate information from staff regarding:

  • publications
  • roles as supervisors
  • research awards received
  • annual performance data

Please let us know if any of the above applies to you as we want to ensure your work is recognised.
