The NIHR Clinical Research Network West Midlands is pleased to announce it has appointed two new Clinical Research Specialty Leads with responsibility for Community Trust Research.
Dr Louise Warburton, Associate Medical Director for Shropshire Community NHS Trust with responsibility for Research, and Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Keele University, says: “I am delighted to be appointed and am looking forward to bringing a ‘can do’ research approach and experience to the regional team.”
Dr Ian Maidment, Reader in Clinical Pharmacy at Aston University adds: “Most patients receive the majority of their treatment in the community, meaning Community Trusts and community-based services are key for the NHS. I am really looking forward to building research in the Community Trusts and the wider community environment across the West Midlands.”
