About the NIHR Nursing & Midwifery Incubator Advisory Service

The NIHR Nursing & Midwifery Incubator is pleased to announce that in partnership with the Research Design Service it has created a virtual advisory service to help aspiring clinical academic nurses and midwifes to advance their research careers.

The service is first being piloted in 3 regions in England – North West, East Midlands and the South East.  The pilot will run and be evaluated for about 6 months before it is rolled out to all other areas of England.

The service is initially available in the above pilot regions only and is accessed by completing an online enquiry form (see below). Your enquiry will be reviewed by an experienced advisor based in your region who will then arrange an online appointment and provide you with tailored advice.

This pilot service is available now
