Research and Development

Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is committed to supporting research to provide the best possible care for its patients. A wide range of research studies are carried out at the Trust. These vary from simple questionnaires to drug studies, and cover a range of clinical specialities.

Research is only permitted to take place after it has been reviewed by a Research Ethics Committee and by the Trust's Research and Development (R&D) Office.

If you wish to take part in research at Burton Hospitals or have any general queries, please contact the R&D Office using the details below.

Please also feel free to ask your doctor or nurse during your visit about whether there are any research studies you may be able to participate in.

Initial enquiries about either participating in or undertaking research should be addressed to the R&D Office.
