Take part in our research

Research participation is valuable to the success of any research study, without involvement from individuals the study wouldn’t be conducted and we couldn’t improve our processes or find new treatments.

If you wish to take part in one of our research studies or be added to our contact database to be kept updated about studies that might be of interest, please email research@swyt.nhs.uk or call us on 01924 316289.

Join Dementia research

What happens when you register?
When you sign up to Join Dementia Research, the information you provide is used to match you to studies that you may be able to take part in, both online, nationally and in your local area. The service connects registered volunteers with dementia researchers across the UK who are looking for people to join their studies.

You can review your study matches once you register and then it’s your decision whether to take part. Taking part means you will make a real difference to the future of dementia care, diagnosis and treatment.

Patient research experience survey (PRES)

Every year, the NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) asks thousands of participants to give feedback on their experience of taking part in research, as a way of demonstrating to research participants that their contribution is valued, and to help improve the way research studies are designed and delivered, now and in the future.

If you have taken part in a eligible research project that is collecting feedback for the survey you may be asked if you would like to complete the PRES.

Please see link below with further information on the survey and results from previous years which may be of interest to everyone
