Research Practice

Our patients are able to participate in high quality research studies on important healthcare issues. This work helps to form future treatments and policies in the NHS and makes a difference to people’s lives.

We may ask you if you would like to take part in a research study. Feel free to ask any questions you may have and decide whether to be involved.

If you would rather not be approached to take part in research studies, that is your right, and you should tell your doctor or nurse.

Whether or not you decide to take part in research studies will not affect your medical care in any way.
