Hundreds of patients, both adult and children, take part in research studies in our Trust every year. Each contributes to better medical care not only here in the UK but across the world.

Our Trust takes clinical research seriously because it’s good for patients, good for staff and good for the NHS and it demonstrates our commitment to improving the quality of care we offer and helps our staff stay abreast of the latest treatment options.

Each quarter we publish data on research we have initiated and research we have delivered here.
