Professor Peter Griffiths, Chair of Health Services Research at the University of Southampton, and Nursing workforce lead for NIHR CLAHRC Wessex has been awarded by the NIHR.
He joins Professor Anne Rogers as one of the 200 NIHR senior investigators. The honour is decided by a competition every year and recognises the research expertise of an individual in their particular field.
Professor Griffiths has published a number of internationally recognised studies looking at nurse staffing and staff performance.
"Despite huge technological advances delivering health care is an essentially human activity, which remains labour intensive. Ensuring we have the right workforce and organisation to deliver high quality and safe care with humanity, now and in the future, is the ultimate aim of my research."
