Research and Development

Research helps us develop new treatments, understand and prevent illnesses, and improve our patient’s quality of life.

We’re involved in a number of research projects in areas such as mental health, dementia, diabetes, sexual health, COPD and Coronavirus (COVID-19).

In 2021/22 1,718 people participated in our research, and our 2020/21 national Participant Research Experience Survey results indicated that 94% would consider taking part in research again.
