Could you help medical students at UEA?

Patient volunteers are needed to take part in student exams.

This is likely to involve being examined by the student, with a doctor assessing the student.

Patient volunteers have early input to a medical students’ career and they help shape tomorrow’s doctors

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
