Research Studies/Clinical Trials
The practice is actively involved in research studies and clinical trials with various organisations. All studies have been looked at in-depth by the GP’s to ensure it is ethical, of value to our patients and to the NHS and that it respects the rights, safety and well-being of those taking part.
You may receive a letter inviting you to participate in a study that the practice is involved in. If you wish to participate, the free phone contact details of the study organiser will be in the letter and a free post envelope included for your reply. The study organisers will not have any of your details unless you choose to respond. The companies are fully compliant with Data Protection laws and meet the rigorous requirements laid down by the Department of Health.
Please note that taking part in research is voluntary – you do not have to take part and you can change your mind at any time. If you decide that you no longer wish to take part this will not affect your care.
