Research at University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust

Plymouth Research and Development

University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust has a well established reputation for high quality research and a strong record of participation in commercial and non-commercial clinical trials. Our vision is to improve the health and wellbeing of our local population by conducting high quality, well run research which is relevant to their needs by embedding research as part of our core business.

The Research and Development team (R&D) is made up of dedicated clinical and non-clinical staff. We aim to provide on-going support and advice throughout the research process to ensure the development of high quality research. Whether you are new to the field or completing on-going research, the R&D team are here to support you throughout your research projects. From guidance on research protocols to advice on applying for funding, the R&D team are happy to help.

Patient participation in research studies is a vital part of healthcare development. It can help to provide new treatments, diagnostic aids or services which could later be adopted across the NHS to improve patient care.
