For service users and carers

If you are a user of our services - or a carer of someone that is - and would like more information or wish to take part in the research we are hosting, please contact us. You may also speak with a member of staff providing your care about studies that may be suitable for you or the person you are caring for. Alternatively, to find out about research studies relating to specific conditions that are taking place in the NHS, please visit the UK Clinical Trials Gateway.

For more general information about user and carer involvement in NHS-based research, please visit the INVOLVE website.

Taking part in a research study gives access to novel treatments and interventions that don't form part of usual NHS care. It's important to note that if you are invited to take part in a research study but do not wish to do so, this is entirely at your discretion and your normal clinical care will not be affected in any way. You are also free to leave a study at any point and, again, your normal clinical care will not be affected.
