Research is a key part of health care development. It aims to find out the causes of human illness and how it can be treated or prevented. You may be invited to participate in research whilst under our care.

Participating in a Clinical Trial
Research is a key part of health care development. It aims to find out the causes of human illness and how it can be treated or prevented. Thousands of people each year agree to take part in research studies, contributing to the testing of potential new treatments, diagnostic aids or other developments, before they are adopted across the National Health Service.

Public Involvement in Health Research
Members of the public can often bring a fresh perspective to research. There have been occasions when members of the public have identified areas of research that have not previously been considered by those close to the research. Click here for more information.

Public and Patient Studies & Events
We run a number of events to raise awareness, educate and recruit to research. Click here for more information.

Plymouth Hospitals Trust hold a database of patients who are happy to be contacted about research. Signing up to the database allows us to keep you up to date with developments and also gives you options on new studies which may be of interest to you. You can also choose to get involved in study design as well if you wish. If you’d like to get involved, please e-mail plh-tr.researchppiaccount@nhs.net and leave your name, e-mail address and address.
