University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust (UHCW) and Coventry University have announced an innovative partnership to develop a Centre for Care Excellence in Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professions (NMHAP). The new Centre will be led by 4 professors, who will be appointed jointly by the University and the Trust to lead the development and success of the Centre. The Centre objectives will be to enhance patient care through research, practice development, education and innovation. Together, the four professors and the teams they will develop, will use their combined expertise to create and work on evidence-based projects and innovative activities to inform practice, education and research within the trust, the university and beyond, to create national and international influence.

These posts represent additional investment and renewed commitment towards our joint ambitions for excellence. We are therefore seeking motivated, experienced and passionate individuals from a nursing, midwifery or allied health professions background who, meet the associated criteria for either an academic professorship or a clinical professorship (or who are working towards these criteria).

Post holders will report directly to the Head of School for Nursing, Midwifery and Health in the University and the Chief Nursing Officer within UHCW, who also has the lead remit for allied health. Whilst the Centre will not seek to enter REF 2021, the goal will be for the Centre to meet REF criteria for the next cycle.

In order to shape the initial creation of the Centre and recruitment of the Professorial leads, a set of broad themes of interest have been established, based on local and national population health needs and priorities, the NHS Long Term Plan, the Five Year Forward Plan and Coventry and Warwickshire system plans.
