Professor Alison Richardson named as NIHR Senior Investigator and Professor Anne Rogers Emeritus

6 March 2018

Professor Alison Richardson has been named as an National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Senior Investigator for her work here with the CLAHRC Wessex.


The honour is decided by a competition every year and recognises the research expertise of an individual in their particular field. NIHR Senior Investigators are among the most prominent and prestigious researchers funded by the NIHR and the most outstanding leaders of patient and people-based research within the NIHR

 

And after serving two terms (the maximum allowed) as an NIHR Senior Investigator Professor Anne Rogers has been awarded Emeritus status making her NIHR Senior Investigator Emeritus – a great achievement.

Overloaded A&Es – Have we got this all wrong? Dr Brad Keogh

Why do we need evidence? At a time when the NHS has limited resources and increases in demand for its services, it seems prudent to only make changes to the service once you are reasonably certain that what you might do may be in the interest of the patients and staff in the system. By enforcing top-down changes to services with little or no evidence of benefit to patients or staff we are using more of this precious resource for no clear benefit. As an engineer coming into the healthcare sector several years ago to do data analytics, it has always surprised me how few decisions in the management of NHS services are made with robust quantitative analysis. It is also a contrast to the evidence based decision making and protocols within medicine. My thought for you: “why can’t we have evidence based service management as well as evidence based medicine?“ read blog >

Patient and public involvement is vital to the success of the CLAHRC.

We would be pleased to hear from you if you are interested in becoming involved in our research and implementation.
