A short paper prepared by HEPI in the course of its review of relations between the higher education sector and the NHS (published as “The Education and Training of Medical and Health Professionals in Higher Education Institutions” in November 2005). This paper feeds into the Department of Health consultation on “Best Research for Best Health”. The report argues that it would be a mistake to prioritise clinical research capability at the expense of addressing pressing staffing issues affecting non-clinical researchers in the biomedical sciences, and suggests that it is important that the latter be addressed alongside the former.
