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
On Thursday 7th June our research staff were present all day to talk to patients about research.
We spoke to lots of patients and explained to them about research using a mock research study called the ‘Chocolate Trial’ – a fun way to see what research involves through the medium of chocolate!
We also held a ‘Name the Teddy’ competition which was won by Rosey. Well done Rosey!
Below is a photo of Rosey with 'Henry'
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.
