Merseyside health researchers to be honoured

By Daniel Williams

An awards ceremony honouring Merseyside health researchers is to be held next month.

The North West Coast Research and Innovation Awards (NWCA) celebrates the work of health workers across the North West region and will be held on March 7.

Nominees are judged on the reach and significance of their innovations, as well as how fresh and unique the research has been.

According to the NWCA there were 140 entries submitted across 12 categories.

Liverpool doctor Amara Nwosu of the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals has been nominated for one of the more significant awards for Clinical Research Rising star of the year.

He was nominated for his work on improving palliative care research opportunities for patients in the North West.

The care aims to help patients who are suffering from an illness that can’t be cured by ensuring they are as comfortable as possible by managing their pain and distressing symptoms.

Dr Nwosu, who is also a lecturer at the University of Liverpool, was happy for the nomination. He said: “I’m delighted to be shortlisted for the award. Irrespective of the eventual outcome, I’m looking forward to the 7th of March.”
