Research and Innovation

“Embed a culture in the organisation that enables every patient, carer and clinician the opportunity to participate in research”

Improving healthcare for the benefit of patients is at the heart of everything we do. Patients within the Trust have some of the best access and opportunities for new therapies and technologies. The Research and Innovation team work hard to provide such clinical research to develop new treatments and knowledge for better health care, building the evidence for new approaches that are safe and effective.

We are a University Hospital Trust. This means we commit significant resources and investment in research and have a keen focus on the educational development and training of our current and future workforces.  

The links below will take you through our latest studies as well as how to get involved with research, both as a  participant in studies and as a healthcare professional wishing to learn more about running one.

The Trust supports the use of email to enhance communication but has a duty to inform participants of the conditions of email communication and the risks. These are clearly documented in the 'Email Communication for Research - Information sheet'.
