Research & Development

Research is a core part of the work the NHS carries out. Our Research and Development team is working hard to raise the profile of the clinical research trials we run throughout our hospitals and our Board has approved a five-year research and development strategy to increase our trial portfolio.

The trials we assist with provide our patients with the chance to receive the latest treatments that would not otherwise be available to them.

This commitment to stay abreast of the latest treatments enables us to provide the highest quality of care for our patients.

A wide range of research trials are running across the whole of the Trust at any one time, with the main areas of activity taking place in oncology, cardiology, stroke, surgery, dementia, paediatrics and neurodegenerative diseases.  

These trials range from observational trials to interventional and medicinal trials.
