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 have an award winning research and development team that promotes and supports health research activities within our Trust. The research we do includes:
Prof Helen Rostill
Director of Innovation, Development and Therapies
Prof Ramin Nilforooshan
Associate Medical Director for R&D, Consultant Psychiatrist
Translational Research & Collaborations Manager
Deputy R&D Manager
Senior Research Facilitator
Senior Research Nurse
Senior Clinical Research Practitioner
Clinical Research Practitioner
Many Trust staff participate in our research, from Board level through to corporate and front-line clinical services, and we also involve people who use our services, their families, carers and the wider public.
