The Researcher Magazine
Health Education England (HEE) are funding NHS R&D North West to work with Early Career Researchers (ECRs) and playwright Rob Young to develop 3 editions of 'The Researcher' over the coming year. Drawing from a bank of stories, news and content, The Researcher will focus on communicating, in an engaging, energising and innovative way, the backstories from research and researchers.
This is a highly collaborative project with ECRs developing the content and forming the editing team. We have identified 15 research enthusiasts with a story to tell and a passion to engage with others across the NHS. This team will contribute to, edit and manage the three publications over the coming year.
