Paediatric Research Nurse

As the Paediatric Research Nurse for DMD and SMA, based at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital, part of the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, I am involved in the set-up, running and close down of clinical trials both commercial and academic for the DMD and SMA population. There are 3 Paediatric Research Nurses and a dedicated Data Manager that been providing high quality research for over 6 years. Our commercial trial profile has increased dramatically over the last 4 years and continues to do so. We pride ourselves on providing a welcoming and safe environment for the patients and their parents / caregivers. We are constantly striving to improve our research environment to ensure that the patients are comfortable and happy, with the aim of having a positive experience whilst enrolled on a research study.
