North Bristol NHS Trust is a centre of excellence for health research. Our core ambition is to lead on quality research, answer important clinical questions, and ultimately improve patient care.
We are currently managing £30 million in grants awarded to us to deliver new programmes of research. Over the last year we have had more grant submissions than ever before, with increasing numbers of our staff leading and designing research, with significant success in areas of musculoskeletal, urology, renal and microbiological grant development and delivery.
Research at NBT is a multi-disciplinary and multi-specialist activity incorporating members of the public, whose specialist lived experience provides our teams with essential and unique perspectives, ensuring our studies are as relevant and accessible as possible to our entire patient population.
North Bristol NHS Trust is also a key partner with University Hospitals Bristol, Royal United Hospitals Bath and Gloucester Hospitals to become one of 13 NHS Genomic Medicine Centres in a major national initiative (The 100,000 Genome Project) that aims to transform diagnosis and treatment for patients with cancer and rare diseases. We will contribute approximately 600 genomes to the project annually, enabling the development of new and better predictive and diagnostic tests for diseases, allowing drugs and other treatments to be tailored precisely to the individual patient.
