The British Heart Foundation has announced research training (PhD) and Advanced Fellowships for NMAHPs that will open in 2021: https://www.bhf.org.uk/for-professionals/information-for-researchers/what-we-fund/research-training-fellowships-for-nurses-and-allied-health-professionals.
The Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) and Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT) are funding internal research fellowships for nurses, midwives and AHPs (NMAHPs). These are intended to buy out time from clinical duties, and provide support and funding for patient and public involvement activities and pilot work so that applicants can develop a competitive doctoral or post-doctoral fellowship application to NIHR, HEE/NIHR integrated clinical academic pathway or comparable charity or research council funding. Information about NIHR and HEE/NIHR fellowships can be found here: http://www.nihr.ac.uk/funding/training-programmes.htm
The first internal NMAHP research fellows were funded in February 2015. Our first awardees were Biljana Brezina, Andrea Edwards, Gillian Gatiss and Emily Johnson. Information about them and their proposed projects can be found here: http://www.cambridge-brc.org.uk/nurses-midwives-and-allied-health-professionals. Diana Day and Peter Hartley were funded in spring 2016. Please see our Fellows’ Page.
CNRG is particularly interested in nurses and AHPs with an interest in research in our topic areas (see Research), especially if planning to submit a doctoral or post-doctoral fellowship application to NIHR, HEE/NIHR, or comparable charity or research council.

Implementation of the strategy will be overseen by the Clinical Research Leadership Group, composed of nurses, midwives and AHPs from all areas of the Trust. The next meetings of the Clinical Research Leadership Group take place as follows:
