Testimonials from Excellence in Research Programme event 2018 attendees:

"Really lovely and inspiring day. Nice to feel valued as a research nurse"

“Very worthwhile programme and good to hear from the patient's perspective. The panel and other responses relate to a lot of situations I have been in, I found this very beneficial.”
“I feel there is such a need for training and supporting for CRNs. We can be so isolated and our role is so misunderstood. A fantastic day! I have learnt so much and feel so inspired.”
