At HHFT we have an ambition to increase research and innovation. We are working with a number of partners to increase our potential in both research and innovation: including Universities, business and local health and social care networks. We want to enhance the support to clinicians in developing and partaking in research projects, developing intellectual property and evaluating innovative technologies. As well as improving the health economy, research active institutions have better patient outcomes.
We would like to see more HHFT clinicians involved with developing and delivering research and we realise that clinicians need time and support to develop their ideas.
