 - In partnership with the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, Health Sciences won an award for research culture at the Health Service Journal Awards.

- Congratulations to David Ferguson, Consultant Nurse (Learning Disabilities) for the Southern Health Trust and Academic Practitioner to the Faculty, has been awarded an MBE for services to Nursing in the Queen's New Year's Honours.

- Congratulations to Kelly Wakefield who recently passed her PhD viva at University of Loughborough having looked at academic networking for learning and teaching. Her thesis focussed on a history of academic networking in Geography, the motivations, experiences and outcomes of networking having surveyed and interviewed academics world-wide.

- Julie Wintrup and Kelly Wakefield have been awarded funding from the Transition Project to look at the international postgraduate students' experience of verbal feedback. The project aims to produce a resource that will provide audio clips of students and educators providing recommendations for best practice alongside a written guide. The outcome will link to Yvette Cox and Jenny Carl's work also funded by Transition Project.

- The Return to Practice programme has been re-approved. This programme has run to great acclaim for some time, but this re-approval saw the introduction of greater service user input and participation in assessment, the introduction of assessment in practice and the creation of a midwifery pathway. The NMC reviewers met with students and Trust representatives and noted that we have excellent partnership working processes.
