"Wealth of knowledge and experience"
I have sought advice and guidance from the Research Design and Conduct Service regarding at least three research funding applications in the last four years. RDCS consultants have always made the time to help, and have become an invaluable ‘critical friend’. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience of research methods as they are applied across a wide range of clinical areas, as well as familiarity with previous both successful and unsuccessful research funding applications.

"Helpful, supportive, timely and professional"
As an early career researcher driving to develop my research profile following the completion of my PhD, I found the Research Design and Conduct Service extremely useful and helpful. From the outset, the team took an interest, got to know my research and had effective processes in place to provide me with timely advice and support to design and develop grant proposals. I was able to access all relevant expertise in research methods such as trial statisticians, data and trial managers and support in qualitative methods to enhance the quality of my research proposals. Subsequently, the RDCS support delivered in an extremely helpful, supportive, timely and professional manner, I feel, was instrumental in my success to date.
