Establishing a Research Culture

We aim to create a research minded culture across the entire NHS. Ensuring organisations and staff at all levels, accept, understand and play their role in communicating, acting and helping improve patient participation in research studies, putting research with care.

Building Research Partnerships

We aim to bring together researchers, clinicians and staff from across the NHS. Working with charities, voluntary organisations, patients, carers and the public. Working in partnership to make participation in research an option for every NHS patient, putting research with care.

Integrating Research with Care

We aim to integrate research as a core element of the normal NHS care pathway. Making better use of NHS resources and improving consistency to ensure that all patients have an equal opportunity to become involved in local and national studies, putting research with care.
