The South West Clinical School at Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust exists to promote evidence-based practice and clinically-focused non-medical research that enhances patient care.
A partnership between the Trust and the University of Plymouth, the Clinical School encourages and supports nurses, midwives and other allied health professionals to look at their practice, challenge current thinking, try out new ideas and work out ways to measure what they're doing.
Our objectives are to:
- increase research capacity, skills, and outputs within nursing, midwifery and allied health professions.
- facilitate higher academic study, including research
- assist the transition of registered healthcare professionals to research leadership roles located within clinical settings.
