As a practice team we see the benefits of supporting health care research as ultimately this work seeks to improve the care received and outcomes for our patients.
We support research a number of studies run by Nottingham University Hospitals and the National Institute for Health Research. All the studies in which we participate have received ethical approval, ensuring that the interests of patients involved in the studies are protected at all times.
Some studies are promoted in the practice and on the website for patients to self volunteer to be involved in. whereas for other studies we may from time to time either approach you during a consultation or write directly to you. Don’t worry, the choice is entirely yours as to whether you want to be involved or not – refusing will not affect the care you receive from us.
We are currently looking to participate in (or are already involved in) the following studies
- Advanced analytics in primary care: actionable information (ACTION)
- An investigation of skill mix in primary care
- Electronic Risk Assessment for Cancer (ERICA) Version 1
- NEON Study
- PROMISE Study (staff)
We are part of the Royal College of General Practitioners Research Ready programme and have staff who are trained in Good Clinical Practice in research.
