Primary Care Research

This General Practice is Research Active

This practice is part of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network for Primary Care. This is the research division of the NHS and is funded by the Department of Health.

The aim of this network is to provide the evidence to enable patients to receive the best possible care. Doctors at the practice may contact you from time to time when you are potentially eligible for a research study. Whether or not you take part in any research study is entirely up to you.

Conducting high quality clinical research helps us to keep improving NHS care by finding out which treatments work best. In this practice, you might be asked to take part in a clinical research study. Also, ask our staff about clinical studies suitable for you. Taking part in a clinical research study is voluntary and can be a rewarding experience.

The decision that you take will not affect your care in this practice in any way.

The information that you give to research study will always remain confidential.

Active Brain Research Study

Our practice has recently signed up to the Active Brain research study run by the University of Southampton and eligible patients will be invited to join the study.

The primary aim of this study is to assess the effectiveness of using a digital intervention (Active Brains website) to help support older adults (60 to 85 years of age) in making healthy lifestyle changes and do activities that can help to keep the brain fit.

This can help with things like your memory and thinking skills.
