Students in R&D

The Research Department welcomes student nurses and physios for novel placements within the clinical research delivery team. They will work alongside Registered Nurses and AHPs to get an insight into the operation of clinical research. 

We are able to showcase how registered professionals work in this area, and support students to achieve their competencies whilst reflecting on the role that research could have in their future careers.

We welcome enquiries from any student on placement at HHFT who would like to come along for an insight day, as well as students who express an interest for longer placements.    


Please contact us on

Please call your practice educator/practice supervisor who you are allocated to today - if you can't access that information, please call either of the main offices and ask to speak with one of the senior research practitioners.
