A key element of our Research and Innovation strategy is to strengthen the academic focus in all clinical teams, which will support our aim to be an international leader of research, innovation and health improvement across key specialist services. I hope these awards will encourage more colleagues to pursue academic careers and contribute their ideas and experience to support innovation for patient benefit.”
