Better Care

Research and Innovation

We are involved in a wide range of projects that can or will benefit patient care and outcomes.

The Research and Innovation team will check all projects are ethical, safe and regulated and our services can offer patients’ the choice to participate.

These studies will have been designed either by our services, Universities, other NHS organisations or companies.   Below is a list of studies which we Sponsor and all of these follow the General Data Protection Regulations (including HRA GDPR guidance).
