Our Research

North Bristol NHS Trust is committed to research that can improve the outcome of its patients and their experience of its services.

Working collaboratively with care providers across the geographical area, we seek to ensure that everyone we meet has equal access to research. With patients and the public at the heart of all we do, our four main aims are; to empower patients in research, support and nurture our workforce, make research visible in day to day activity, and work with our regional partners to improve healthcare.

This commitment has enabled us to deliver research both on time and to target, which ultimately leads to the highest quality outcomes and improved care for our patients.

Highlights from 2022-2023:

  • NBT was named third highest recruiter of participants to non-commercial research in England, with more than 12,000 patients taking part
  • We were awarded 90% of studies at full stage submission
  • The total value of NIHR grants awarded to and managed by NBT now places us 9th in the country out of 248 Trusts (Assessed by the annual Department of Health and Social Care award of research capability funding (RCF)
