I am delighted and honoured to receive this award for my PhD research which focusses on the impact domestic violence has on the friends and family members of survivors. It is wonderful to see the interest this work has generated and I am grateful to the NIHR School for Primary Care Research for investing in the research" - Alison Gregory
