Research & Development

Within Research at North Bristol NHS Trust, we are dedicated to making research both relevant and accessible to the general public, to patients and their carers.

Clinical research helps us understand how to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease. It focuses on people, and many clinical research studies directly involve patients to see which medicines or medical treatments work best for the patient.

At North Bristol NHS Trust each year over 7,000 patients take part in research with more than 500 research staff undertaking over 500 studies each year across the organisation.

Innovation is also key at the Trust, and we work closely with our regional partners to develop new healthcare products and services designed to benefit our patients.
