Advanced nurse practitioner Enzo Harris has been successful in his application to become a clinical academic research fellow with the University of Huddersfield.
The Trust has been working with the department of nursing and midwifery at the University of Huddersfield to develop this exciting new role, which gives a mental health or learning disability nurse the skills and knowledge needed to improve healthcare and patient outcomes, think differently about clinical practice and develop their academic career.
Enzo, who works on the Horizon Centre at Fieldhead in Wakefield, will combine high quality clinical practice with training and study for a PhD while acquiring the skills and knowledge to operate confidently in both the NHS and University. He will start the 4-year part-time fellowship in January 2020.
Deputy director of nursing and quality Mike Doyle said: “This will hopefully be the first of many more similar opportunities for nurses and allied health professionals in the future.”
