Accident and emergency (A&E) research

Accident and emergency services for adults and children are provided at the University Hospital of North Tees in Stockton. We assess and treat people with serious injuries and those in need of emergency treatment.

We are also involved in some research studies.

If you choose to take part in one of our research trials, it may involve completing a questionnaire, blood tests and some other tests.

If the research involves additional visits to the hospital then you will normally be paid for your travel costs.

We’re always looking at the effectiveness of treatments and new treatments which could be used to help people who attend A&E.

We want to help you understand more about your condition and your treatments. Being involved in research can really help with this and help others with similar conditions in the future.

Clinical trials

The trust is a research active trust and we are committed to supporting research studies.

At the moment you could take part if you have:

  • A head injury

However we are always expanding the number of research studies that we take part in so it’s always good to check with your doctor or nurse if you are interested in taking part.


If you are interested in taking part in any A&E trials please contact:
