Launched at the Health and Care Research Wales Conference in October, our 2017-18 Annual Report shows the strides we’ve taken towards our vision of Wales as a country internationally recognised for its excellent health and social care research.
The report, which is available in English and Welsh, highlights some of the stand-out examples of research from across our infrastructure and its impact on people and services. It also showcases our support for researchers and the central role of public involvement and engagement in health and social care research across Wales.
In his foreword, Dr Frank Atherton, Chief Medical Officer for Wales said: “Putting research evidence at the heart of health and care decision making has never been so important, and I am delighted to see the health and care research community stepping up to the challenge of producing research that matters – research that informs and improves our decision making, improves the health and wellbeing of the population, and helps future-proof our health and care services both for now and for generations to come.”
