Clinical trials

There are many different types of research studies which we are involved with; some look at improving current treatments, others focus on specific conditions or medical devices. All of our studies have to follow strict rules on medical ethics and have been approved by the Government. For further information please refer to NHS Choices’ clinical trials and medical research site.

It’s okay to ask

Our Trust recruits around 1,200 patients into trials every year. The more research that’s carried out, the better the outcome for patients all over the world.
