The Research Department serves multiple functions within the trust, all of which serve to increase the relevance of the research.  We encourage a research culture within the trust, promoting collaborative arrangements with both internal and external researchers, whilst maintaining a national research profile. Our key areas of research include clinical and academic research and evaluation. The department continuously reviews systems and processes to ensure research meets the requirements of the Department of Health Research Governance Framework and the regulatory frameworks governing both clinical and academic research.

We strive to deliver high quality research whilst offering patients the opportunity to participate in research.
