Research and development

We are a research active trust. We take part in clinical research studies for a number of different clinical illnesses.

Research is important because it can help to improve healthcare by finding out which treatments work best.

Many of our patients are helping us with research projects but we want to include more people and give more of you an opportunity to contribute to improving care now and in the future.
