Simon Denegri OBE

Session information

How much progress have we made in really embedding a research culture in the NHS in Wales, and giving organisations the capacity and capability to both engage in research and use research evidence in their decision making? Does research really matter to senior leaders – policymakers, clinicians, and health board and trust board members? 

In this session Simon Denegri OBE, executive director of the Academy of Medical Sciences will reflect on learning from the Academy’s landmark report last year on NHS research capacity and culture, and Usha Boolaky, assistant director of research for the Health Foundation will speak from a larger research funders perspective on their experience of working with NHS organisations on developing and implementing their research agenda. A key question will be – what should we be doing differently in the future? There will be plenty of opportunity to raise questions and have a constructive debate about the issues.
