We work as part of the National Institute for Health and Research which is an NHS body and have been actively recruiting for academic, non-commercial, and commercial studies for over ten years.
The studies we take part in are ethically approved and help to improve treatments, management and understanding of many medical conditions. Some of these studies enable licences for new therapies to be approved and get drugs to market for certain patient groups.
We endeavour to provide access to research for all our patients and to improve health care as a result. Being invited to take part in a study can come in many ways, perhaps directly from your GP or via a newspaper or social media advert or from a poster displayed in the surgery. Participation helps expand medical knowledge, understanding and therapies for medical conditions. Our team are fully trained in GCP (Good Clinical Practice guidance) with patient safety being at the heart of what we do.
