The CEO, Mr Gavin Boyle visited our Research & Development department on the 16th June 2016 and met with our senior team members who shared with him the activities, successes and vision of the department.

Mr Boyle seemed delighted with the information he received from the team and this was conveyed in his weekly blog where he particularly talked about his “fabulous” visit to the department and said that “Their enthusiasm and ambition to take the Trust to the top of the R&D league was hugely impressive.”  

He also stated that, although the Trust is currently in the top 25% of Trusts in the UK in relation to research, Dr Teresa Grieve—Assistant Director of R&D—and her team are not complacent.  He said, “They’ve got lots of ideas and plenty of energy to drive things forward and make sure we excel not only in medical trials but in all aspects of research from nursing and therapies to pharmacy and much more beyond.” 

 When asked about the meeting with the CEO, Dr Teresa Grieve, said, “We were delighted that Mr Boyle was able to meet with the team.  His genuine interest in and support for our work and plans was hugely motivational.”
