We meet every month with the surgery’s Patients Participation Group to inform them of the research studies we are doing at the surgery.
The PPG have are very supportive in helping us to get research information out to our patients and giving practical support and feedback to us.
International Clinical Trials Day
This year we will be celebrating ‘International Clinical Trials Day’ during the week of 15th May 2017 when we will have an exhibition in the reception at Penntorr.
On Thursday 18th May Nicola Donlin (Lead Research Nurse) and Lisa McEleny (Research Assistant & Study Coordinator) will be available to talk to patients about research at the surgery. There will be the opportunity to take part in ‘The Chocolate Trial’, a bit of fun to explain a clinical research study. We will also be holding a ‘Name the Teddy’ competition.
Come and speak to some of our patients who have been taking part in research and find our what they thought of their experience.
Kate Atkinson, the Chair of our Patients Participation Group, was recently featured in the Clinical Research Network magazine. We would like to thank Kate for sharing her experience of being in a research study. Please read her interview below.
