Nottingham Trauma Study Awards and Prizes

The Queens Medical Centre Trauma service (adults, paediatrics and hands) has a fund to support education and development of all its staff negotiated as part of the trauma tender process and kindly supported by Smith and Nephew.

This is administrated by Mr Dan Deakin (Head of Service) and Mr Ben Ollivere (Academic Head of Division & Programme Director). The fund extends to doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and auxiliaries.

How much funding can I apply for?
