The practice has a long tradition of participation in research and development and in medical education. In 2004 we achieved accreditation by the Royal College of General Practitioners as an investigator-led research practice. In 2003 a Healthcare IT Effectiveness award was achieved for innovation.
The practice is involved in national and international studies developing and evaluating the use of tools such as tele-conferencing and physiological monitoring systems in healthcare. This includes assessment of acceptability to patients, clinical outcomes and cost.
Patients may be asked to participate in research or teaching which is always linked to clinical care. Participation is done with consent, and is voluntary and your decision will not affect your clinical care. If you are interested in taking part in any of the current research projects or would like further information please contact Jo Fursse.
