The GLREF provides support for research and continuing professional education. To be eligible for financial support from GLREF, applicants must be clinical employees of ADHB from one of the following five departments:

  • Adult Cardiology
  • Cardiothoracic Surgery
  • Cardiothoracic Anaesthesia/Cardiothoracic and Vascular Intensive Care Unit
  • Paediatric and Congenital Cardiac Services

Research must pertain to the activities of one of the five departments and the applicants must be a member of one of these five departments. However, applicants may apply with co-investigators who are not members of one of the five departments as long as the applicant is actively involved in the research. The GLREF does not fund activities related to routine clinical care including database development. Application forms and guidelines for submission are provided below.
