Free advisory service – Research Design and Conduct Service (RDCS)

Do you work in the NHS or social care and want to do research? If so, did you know that there is a free advisory service that you can access that provide unlimited support to help develop high quality funding applications? The Research Design and Conduct Service (RDCS) is just that!

We are an all-Wales service with centres in Swansea, Bangor and Cardiff.  We have academic expertise in statistics, health economics, qualitative research, data management, trial management, patient and public involvement and in writing grant applications.

If you have an idea, no matter how fledgling, you can contact us to discuss it. We would love to chat with you about your idea and help you develop and refine it. We are a very friendly bunch and will be able to signpost you to all sorts of resources to help you in your research plans.

Our goal is to increase the research funding coming into Wales and to help develop chief investigator capacity. We would love to hear from you so get in touch today! Contact details for all of the RDCS services are available here.
