Research and Publications

Although in early stages, the UHP pharmacy department is developing a strong research culture. We are already seeing the positive impact that engaging with research could have not only on an individual’s professional & personal development, but also on raising the profile of the department and indeed Hospital. In 2021, we bid successfully against 33 other trusts (3 trusts were successful) to win a grant to fund an academic intern. We have also teamed up with the University of Bath to create a region wide research hub across multiple Hospitals and NHS organisations and plan to have a Congress later in the year.
