    Over the past 15 years, health policies have identified and promoted the development of clinical academic roles in nursing, midwifery and allied health professions (NMAHPs) (Association of UK University Hospitals (AUKUH), 2016). Clinical academic NMAHPs are are often the main point of contact with patients and are, therefore, in a unique position to lead clinically relevant research, translate innovation into healthcare practice and make a significant contribution to improving the quality of care (Henshall et al, 2021). Additionally, there is increasing evidence that research-active organisations can improve healthcare performance (Boaz et al, 2015), increase treatment options and improve clinical care and patient outcomes (Majumdar et al, 2008). While the benefits of NMAHP clinical academics' roles in healthcare are widely recognised, until recently, they have not been clearly defined.
