Why do we do Research here?

  • Research is crucial to help us discover new knowledge and change lives
  • It is through research that we can develop better treatments, as well as improve diagnosis, prevention, care and quality of life for everyone
  • All medical devices and medication currently used today have had to go through clinical trials to deem them safe and fit to use
  • It helps the practice to access funding and resources that can benefit our patients directly

  • The NIHR fund, enable and deliver world leading health and social care research. Established in 2006 and working in partnership with NHS, universities and local government
  • Helping to shape NHS research. Used in 1000s of instances to shape health and care policy

Is Research safe?

  • Each stage of research study has to go through ethical policy
  • Research is voluntary and should always involve gaining informed consent
  • Patient confidentiality is maintained at all times
