Our aim in R&D

As a Research Active Trust, we want to promote and support high quality research and attract staff that share our passion. We see it as an essential part of our drive to provide the best quality of care, to be at the leading edge of innovation, and to ensure our services are both cost-effective, safe and of the highest quality.

Why we do Research

  •   To develop new treatments and medicine
  •   To prevent illnesses
  •   To improve quality of life
  •   To improve our understanding of the causes of medical and psychological conditions and how they develop
  •   To understand the emotional and physical support needed by people living with a condition.
  •   To improve the way that services are delivered to deliver better outcomes
