Feedback from previous NIHR Researcher Roadshows:

‘Really well- structured day, with plenty of chances to ask questions’

‘This was an excellent day. I arrived in the UK in March this year from Australia. I am familiar with datasets, data sources and approval processes in Australia so it has been an extremely useful session for me today to get a sense of where the UK is at.’

‘All speakers were great and covered very relevant topics. This has been very useful’

‘Very practical – slides really helped to explain concepts and conten.t’
