In 2019 we hosted 4 local events. The first two were HEE/NIHR Pre-doctoral Clinical Academic Fellowships workshops to support AHPs who are considering applying. These were held in Bristol and Cornwall on different dates. The second event focused on Patient and Public Involvement. Sites in Bristol and Cornwall joined together to hear a number of presentations.  

Details of 2020 activities coming soon.
