RCBC Wales is funded by the Welsh Government through Health and Care Research Wales and is a collaboration between six university nursing and allied health departments in Wales. As the
grant holder it is my privilege to lead this exciting initiative. The purpose of the collaboration is to increase research capacity in nursing, midwifery, the allied health professions and
pharmacists across Wales. It does this through a number of schemes ranging from 'First into Research' opportunities to Post Doctoral
All members of the this scheme join the Community of Scholars which provides a mechanism for adding value to the studentships. The Community of Scholars provides mentorship and master classes in
research methods and research leadership throughout the year and is an integral part of the scheme and highly valued by fellows.
RCBC is very proud of its fellows and their achievements.
