Sara Bennett

A Stepping Hill Hospital nurse has been shortlisted for region’s ‘Research Nurse of the Year’ award.  

Sara Bennett is up for the title in the Greater Manchester Clinical Research Awards for her research work with children in the hospital’s paediatric department.

Sara has been a research nurse at Stepping Hill Hospital for eight years, recruiting many young volunteers for research projects alongside her nursing role with children.  She has recruited children and families to a range of research studies with some exceptional results, including the first volunteers for the ‘Archie’ study which helps vulnerable children against the flu virus.

Dr Chris Cooper, Associate Clinical Director for Child and Family Services at Stockport NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Stepping Hill Hospital, said, “Sara has a knack of recruiting patients and families to take part in studies which is due to her personable manner and enthusiasm. She always receives excellent feedback from external reviewers due to her thoroughness and conscientious approach. She would be a thoroughly deserving winner of the title of Research Nurse of the Year.”

The awards are run by the Greater Manchester Clinical Research Network aimed at honouring excellence in clinical research in the region, winners will be announced on 17th November.
