Annual Research Report

The SCHHS Annual Research Report is our opportunity to recognise and celebrate the great work of our SCHHS researchers and their many research partners and collaborators throughout the year.

As a health service we have a strong commitment to research and the benefits that it can bring to our patients and community. We operate in a demanding clinical and financial environment, yet our research activity and outcomes are impressive and as an organisation, we continue to grow and develop strength in research every year.
