Why should we be doing research in the first place?
Research is essential to find out what treatments work best for patients, and to ultimately improve service delivery and care. Without it we wouldn’t know if we were providing the best care that we could for patients. Research also helps us to understand conditions better.
What does the Research and Innovation department do?
The R&I department is here to assist and support the Trust in running high quality applied research. The department is here to also develop research capacity of the Trust, so we can take on more commercial studies, as well as support and develop Trust staff in regards to research skills.
Our vision is to embed research into everyday clinical work and to give every patient the opportunity to take part in research.
