Research and development

The Trust has an in house research and development (R&D) department that manages, facilitates and governs all research to ensure it reflects services and the geographical area the Trust serves.

The R&D department is a single point of contact for all Trust research related enquiries. Support is available to staff, patients/service users and carers who would like to become more involved in research as well as those who are established researchers. Advice and information is available on NHS research approval, ethics, the research passport, letters of access, training and funding opportunities, patient/service user and carer involvement in research and dissemination.

We take part in research in order to ensure we offer the best treatments for those who use our services. We may therefore use your data to help in research projects. Find out more about how we might use your data for research and what we do to ensure your information is kept private and safe.
