NHS GGC Nursing and Midwifery Research

Welcome  to the webpages dedicated to providing NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde nurses and midwives with information and advice about research.

The NHS GGC Nursing and Midwifery Research Strategy was launched by our Executive Nurse Director, Professor Rosslyn Crocket,in April 2014. It aims to improve patient care and experience by increasing research capacity and capability among nurses and midwives. This is being achieved in various ways:

  • Developing better links with local universities
  • Setting up research groups in each clinical area
  • Establishing mechanisms for ensuring that masters dissertations focus on research priorities for each clinical area and are used to inform the development of patient care.

If you are planning to undertake a Masters dissertation or other research project please read the information which is specifically for NHS GGC nurse and midwife researchers.

Your first point of contact is your Clinical Area Research Group (CARG). A CARG has been set up for each Clinical Area - please see here for contact details of your CARG Lead. Some CARGS in the Acute sector (Surgery and Anaesthetics, ECMS and RAD) are to be reconfigured to align with the restructuring from Directorates to Sectors once the new systems are established and personnel settled into their new roles and surroundings.

  • If you are unsure who to contact
  • If you find any of the links are missing
  • If there is anything you would like included on the webpages to share with others

Please get in touch with Dr Rhona Hogg, Clinical Nurse Lead for Applied Research and Development ([email protected]).
