RESEARCH

Research is a key principle of the NHS to improve the current and future health and care of the population. Research involving patients and members of the public leads to results that are more reliable and therefore more likely to be put into practice.

We want patients and the public to be involved in all stages of research. This covers:

  • Setting research priorities
  • Helping to decide what the research needs to achieve
  • Choosing the methods used to carry out research
  • Recruiting people into research studies
  • Understanding what the research findings mean for patients and how it can be utilised in Primary Care

The team consists of:

Staff Details

Rebecca has a vast amount of knowledge in clinical research and has previously worked at clinical trial units within Universities where she has run studies from within the unit. At Birmingham, Oxford and Cambridge she has worked on health areas such as breast cancer, low back pain and diabetes.

Patients currently registered with the Axbridge & Wedmore Medical Practice may be invited to join studies if they meet the strict eligibility criteria. Patients will be fully informed about any study before they consent to take part in any research.

Patient care will never be compromised whether they decide to take part or not.

We will keep everybody fully informed and as always put our patients first.
