Research on the up across the West of England
Local NHS Trusts and GPs took part in more clinical studies last year than ever before, participating in a combined total of 1065 trials in the West of England, across the full range of health and care issues, contributing to the drive for better treatments for all NHS patients.
The 2015/16 NHS Research Activity League Table, published today by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), shows all local NHS Trusts are delivering clinical research, as set out in the NHS Constitution. The League Table provides a picture of how much clinical research is happening, where, in what types of trusts and settings, and involving how many patients.
Rebecca Smith Deputy Director of Research & Innovation
“Research is at the heart of what we do here at North Bristol NHS Trust. Last year’s figures are up for both research studies opening and an increase of patients taking part in research and we are working hard to build and maintain that momentum. Evidence clearly shows research active trusts have better patient outcomes, so the overall league table results are a great achievement for all involved.”
