The Silverstone Fellowship programme encourages excellence in innovative research on the patient-provider relationship in order to support service improvement projects and training at the Division of Women’s Health, University College London Hospital (UCLH).
The Silverstone Fellowship aims to support doctors and midwives to take part in research that has direct impact on patients’ lives.
Each Silverstone Fellow will receive an honorary contract at the UCL EGA Institute for Women’s Health and a bursary of £1,000 as a source of funding for research costs, as well as to present findings at meetings and conferences.
The programme is hosted by the The Ethics Centre at the UCL Institute for Women’s Health, which supports research and training in maternity and gynaecology. Since 2015, the Centre has undertaken ethics-related empirical research and devised innovative teaching modules for UCL students, the general public as well as NHS healthcare professionals.
Each Silverstone Fellow will be supervised jointly by Mr Silverstone and NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow, Dan Reisel. The programme is overseen by a committee of clinicians at UCLH, which includes Professor Donald Peebles, Consultant Obstetrician and Divisional Clinical Director for Women’s Health, Dr Melissa Whitten, Consultant Obstetrician and Teaching Lead for Women’s Health, and Miss Emma Taylor, Consultant Surgeon and Director of Education, UCLH.
