R&I Achievements

Our annual research conference was held this year May 2022, for the first time after being unable to host for a couple of years due to COVID-19. The conference was held in a hybrid format, with staff being able to attend both in person and virtually. We listened to talks from staff members in the hospital, including doctors running COVID-19 studies, and the previous poster competition winners. We were fortunate enough to have received 48 poster submissions, these presented research that has been conducted in different departments in the hospital. This years poster winners are listed below:
