Your Practice is Research Active

All NHS organisations are expected to participate and support health and care research.

Conducting high-quality clinical research helps us to keep improving NHS care by finding out which treatments work best

If you are asked about taking part in research, usually someone in the care team looking after you will contact you. People in your care team may look at your health records to check whether you are suitable to take part in a research study, before asking you whether you are interested or sending you a letter on behalf of the researcher

For more information about how your information may be used in research and your rights please visit https://www.hra.nhs.uk/information-about-patients/


The University of Cambridge CLIMB team are interested in peoples' views on consent and information sharing between NHS services. If you are interested in taking part in their anonymous survey then please follow this link https://www.climbproject.org.uk

The survey is voluntary and takes 15-20 mins but you can take a break. When asked where did you hear about this survey don’t forget to tick ‘from a GP’ and put The Leiston Surgery for our surgery.
