About The Health and Care Research Wales Workforce

The Health and Care Research Wales Workforce is part of Health and Care Research Wales, funded by Welsh Government. The Health and Care Research Wales Workforce works in support of Welsh Government’s overarching vision which is to be internationally recognised for excellent health and social care research that has a positive impact on the health, wellbeing and prosperity of the people in Wales. The Workforce’s role is:

  • To provide a co-ordinated national research delivery service in health and social care in Wales and
  • To work collaboratively with NHS Research and Development teams, the Health and Care Research Wales Support Centre and Health and Care Research Wales Centres and Units to develop an integrated system for research development, support and delivery in Wales.

The Workforce works locally in regional networks to deliver these national services.
