AHP research bursary

The Cheshire & Merseyside AHP (Allied Health Professionals) Research Network is offering bursaries of up to £1,000 to facilitate small scale research studies conducted by AHPs.

Applications are open to AHPs who work in the Cheshire & Merseyside region.

The applicant is expected to complete a small research project and provide a written report of results.

Examples of suitable studies may include pilot work (small scale preliminary studies) and proof of concept (feasibility studies collecting and analysing data to obtain evidence to support or refute ideas or plans). Preference will be given to projects that incorporate patient and public involvement.

Funding may be used in a number of ways, for example:

  • To back fill staff time  – release researcher from clinical duties to undertake the research
  • Training – for help with statistics, surveys, interviews etc.
  • Transcription costs
  • Payment of patient and public expenses.

Only direct costs can be covered by the bursary.

The applicant is expected to forge a link with their NHS Trust Research Office and establish a mentor within the Trust, who will be able to provide support.

Applicants should submit their application form by email by 5pm on Monday 27th February 2017 to rowef@liverpool.ac.uk.
