PhD students

A key aim of the NIHR Greater Manchester PSTRC is to build further capacity in primary care safety research at early stages of translation within and between research and practice communities.

We recruited and directly funded six PhD students between 2012 and 2017 to work on research topics including:

  • procedural violations in pharmacy;
  • patient and public involvement for black and minority ethnic (BME) groups;
  • care pathway assessments across different health information systems.

Our funding for 2017 to 2022 will support PhD students in all research themes, as well as recruiting additional PhD students from within the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health in health economics.

In addition, three PhDs will be 100% funded by The Christie Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and one PhD will be 100% funded by CLAHRC East Midlands.
