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.
Minder is an award winning study that aims to improve the lives of people with dementia.
People with dementia their carers to trial the technologies and provide feedback. Individuals with dementia must still live at home.
The pioneering study uses a network of digital devices installed in a person’s home in combination with artificial intelligence to remotely monitory the health and wellbeing of the person with dementia.
