Research Day

The Trust has beaten its 2016/17 target for recruiting participants to research studies by succeeding in gaining 540 recruits against a target of 450.

The success follows on from the appointment of a Lead Research Nurse Rachel Walker and support from the whole research team.

“The Trust is committed to the principles and benefits of conducting research, “said Rachel.  “We have a number of exciting studies currently recruiting participants or underway and want to increase our research work further in future years.”

Studies are taking place in a wide range of clinical areas, including dermatology, critical care, cardiology, rheumatology, oncology , stroke, reproductive health, diabetes, surgery, orthopaedics and haematology .

The team is celebrating International Clinical Trials Day by hosting a stand in the hospital’s Community Corner today (Thursday 18 May) from 10 am to 3 pm, where members of the public can find out more about participating and colleagues can ask about conducting their own research.

Dr Richard Went, Consultant Haematologist, is just one of the Trust’s clinicians currently undertaking important research.

“Our research offers an innovative therapy to patients with a specific form of leukaemia, which removes the need for traditional chemotherapy.  It works by using an antibody in combination with a small molecule inhibitor.  We have recruited twice as many patients this year as we originally predicted.  It is great to be involved in such a collaborative and worthwhile UK-wide project,” he said.
