What is Research?

Have you ever wondered how your doctor or nurse knows the best treatment to prescribe when you’re ill? The answer is simple – it’s all down to research studies which are designed to find ways to treat or prevent disease.

 Why Take Part in Research

The goal of research is to improve everyone’s knowledge about health and disease. Taking part in research may lead to new solutions to problems and thus improving health. Moreover, taking part in research may enable you to access new and innovative treatments before they’re available to others.

Working with Your Surgery

The Primary Care Research Network is part of the NHS and has a portfolio of research studies. Your surgery actively supports PCRN’s work. This means that your surgery is sent information about new studies and invited to take part. If the doctors are happy that the research will benefit patients, work will then start to identify eligible patients. This means you might receive a letter from the surgery, or your doctor or nurse may discuss a study with you during your appointment. Either way, it is up to you to decide whether you want to take part.
