We have robust governance procedures in place ensuring we only participate in high quality research studies.
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), the NHS arm of research, encourages patients, service users and the public to get involved in clinical research by talking to healthcare professionals about research activities in their area. We support the I AM Research campaign which helps us raise the profile of our research here, and follows the OK to ASK campaign that supports clinical research, so that our patients feel more confident to ask medical staff about studies they or their relatives can get involved in.
Research changes people's lives, which is why we are raising our research profile and collecting our patient stories to showcase real-life examples of how our patients have benefited from clinical research.

Perhaps you or a relative or someone you know who has a medical condition or receives treatment and would be keen to know more about taking part in research activity?
