We are a Research Active Practice
We regularly participate in research studies that have been approved by the National Institute for
Health Research (NiHR) and which have Ethical Approval.
You may be contacted by the practice from time to time, asking if you would like to participate in a research study. All studies are approved by the GPs in the practice. You will always have the opportunity to discuss any study with your GP and are under no obligation to participate. You have the right to let us know if you would prefer not to be contacted for research purposes, please let the practice know if this is the case.
Health research is important, it allows individuals to share their experience of specific diseases and healthcare, and it helps with the development of new technology and treatments to improve the future health and treatment of the wider population.
