The Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professions Research Unit (NMAHP RU) was established in 1994 and is funded through a 5 year rolling award by the Scottish Government. This supports 7 core senior academics with a focus on improving clinical outcomes and service quality in areas of practice that fall within the NMAHP remit. Co-investment by partner HEIs and a highly successful research track record means that the Unit now has 60-70 staff and full time PhD students.

The Unit has specialised and dedicated methodologists in statistics, record linkage, complex service evaluations, systematic reviews (Cochrane, and qualitative), randomised controlled trials, consensus methods and qualitative research. The Unit also has a substantive researcher development scheme for all staff that provides support for grant writing, paper writing, and skills development.
