The Emergency & Intensive Care Research Group (EMERGING) at CMFT currently boasts two Professors of Emergency Medicine, four dedicated research nurses, and one research co-ordinator/senior information scientist. The research group meets every month and we have a weekly journal club.

CMFT Emergency Department is an academic department with a strong track record for producing high quality research over many years.  Our doctoral research fellowships have been kick starting the careers of the country’s most promising academic emergency physicians for well over a decade.  The work we have produced has influenced national guidelines (including the current NICE paediatric head injury guideline) and international guidelines (including the latest International Liaison Committee Guideline for Acute Coronary Syndromes).  We have written evidence-based national guidelines (GEMNet guidelines for tricyclic antidepressant overdose, lone acute severe headache and anaphylaxis).  Our work has been published in high impact journals including the BMJ, Lancet and Journal of the American College of Cardiology.  We are also the home of Best BETs from the Manchester Royal Infirmary, which are published in the Emergency Medicine Journal and Archives of Disease in Childhood.
