The Research and Capacity Building Grand Round Webinar saw more than 50 participants learn more about the importance of this area for Cheshire and Merseyside.

Chaired by Dr Cecil Kullu, Associate Medical Director for Research, Development and Innovation at Merseycare NHS Foundation Trust, the session was opened by Prof Gillian Hutcheon, Head of Education and Research Capacity Building for LHP.

Prof Hutcheon told the 50 participants about the plans for the co-creation of an LHP Research Capacity Building (RCB) framework to improve research capability, capacity, inclusivity and culture across the different health and social care disciplines and sectors. She also encouraged others who are interested in building research capability and capacity to contact her with regards to joining the LHP RCB development group.
