As part of the National Institute for Health Research, we use the skills, knowledge and expertise of researchers, health and social care professionals, managers, commissioners and patients to conduct high quality research projects to find new ways of improving healthcare. Our aim is to ensure the results of the research are translated quickly and effectively into benefits for patients, the wider NHS and social care.

    The Inspiring Emmanuel Amuta


    The Emmanuel Amuta Poetry Award has been created in loving memory of Emmanuel Amuta who suffered from sickle cell and sadly passed away on 19 September 2017, age 14 years old. Emmanuel was a confident, caring and gifted young man most cherished by the Sickle Cell Society and all that met him. From a young age, Emmanuel enjoyed writing, rapping and performing his poetry. At the Sickle Cell Society’s AGM in July 2016 Emmanuel narrated his poem ‘A Beautiful Cell’ which earned him a standing ovation and encore. This award will be his fitting legacy.
