Health and social care research helps us learn about why we become ill and what we can do to stay well. It advances our knowledge so that we can find new treatments, change the way we deliver care, prevent illness and improve the environment, health and wellbeing of local populations.
We support research that benefits people who use our services and the communities we serve. We have studies for children and young people, dementia, substance misuse, eating disorders, learning disabilities and mental health.
We support research that produces benefits for the people who use our services and the communities we serve.
Our core purpose is to promote wellbeing and improve people's mental and physical health by delivering excellent and responsive prevention, diagnosis, early intervention, treatment and care.
Research is integral to promoting high quality healthcare and our vision is to create a vibrant and collaborative research culture within our Trust that is at the forefront of innovation, evidence-based practice, and effective service delivery.
An overwhelming proportion of the public and healthcare leaders recognise the wide ranging benefits yielded by research into new approaches and treatments and agree that it should be prioritised within the NHS.
