New Clinical Director appointed by NIHR to further integrate research

The NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) have appointed Professor Robert Peveler as its new Clinical Director for NHS Engagement, leading work to support health and care settings promote and embed health and care research into their local organisations.

Professor Peveler has worked with the NIHR CRN for the last 10 years, most recently working as Clinical Director at CRN Wessex since 2014.

Having trained in medicine and psychiatry in Oxford, where he held posts as a Wellcome Trust Research Fellow and Clinical Lecturer in Psychiatry, he moved to Southampton in 1992 and became a Professor in 1999, appointed Head of the Mental Health Clinical Group from 2000 to 2008 and Director of the Division of Clinical Neurosciences from 2008 to 2010.

He also served as a Non-Executive Director on the board of Hampshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust from 2005 to 2011.

Speaking about his appointment, he said: “I’m delighted to take up this new position. In previous Network roles, the NHS Engagement work has been the element I have most enjoyed. Ensuring that research is seen as a priority within the NHS and other settings, and enabling as many participants as possible to take part in research is a key objective that we need to keep progressing to help meet the goals set out in the NHS 10-year plan.”

“There is still much work to do in encouraging and enabling research to take place in all settings including public health and in wider care settings. Research has never been more important to providing better treatment and care options and that gives us a great platform to explore the parameters of working in new areas.”
