A quick post following a half-term break. Cornwall proved to be a fine place to spend last week. It is, truly, a most beautiful part of the country. Here’s a photo of the beach at St Ives to prove it.
Now it’s back to it. This week I’m working on two projects, and in the case of one will hope, by Friday, to be clearer on local arrangements for making payments to service user researchers. There’s some work to be done on preparing NHS R&D applications, too. Over the next week or so I also need to put some time aside to respond to Cardiff University’s consultation on the reorganisation of schools within the College of Biomedical and Life Sciences. The idea has been formally proposed that the School of Nursing and Midwifery Studies (where I work) and the School of Healthcare Studies (home to the academic occupational therapists, physiotherapists, radiographers and operating department practitioners) might merge. A move of this type has been on the cards for some time, so no surprises there.
