The NHS-R community is only as strong as its members, and we continue to seek ways to promote and reward all the wonderful, kind, and talented people using R all over health and social care.

The NHS-R Champions and Fellows scheme aims to do this.

NHS-R awards the following titles:

  • Champion Someone who promotes R in health and social care, regardless of their technical expertise, providing energy and enthusiasm, blog posts, and discussion on Slack/ Twitter/ wherever else
  • Fellow Someone with some expertise in R in health and social care, who might contribute by training, or answering questions on Twitter or Slack, or any other way that they can help others with their expertise
  • Senior Fellow Someone with acknowledged expertise in R who can contribute to NHS-R by training, mentoring, helping with questions, and sharing their code, methodology, or good practice with the community
  • Associate Someone who promotes R in health and social care, sharing their skills and expertise, but who does not themselves work in health and social care in the UK


If you would like to apply for a NHS-R title please complete the application form and send this to nhs.rcommunity@nhs.net.

If you have any questions about applying to be a NHS-R Fellow, please contact: nhs.rcommunity@nhs.net

All applications are considered by the NHS-R Technical Advisory Group and will be informed as soon as an approval decision has been made.
