Information for patients and the public

Welcome to the area of our website dedicated to providing our patients and the general public with information about the importance of your involvement in clinical research within our Trust.

Through research, we can help meet the NHS and UH Bristol's primary objective, to improve patient care. But, we can only achieve this with your help. Patient involvement in clinical research is vital, and public involvement is also much needed and appreciated. Research helps to answer the questions about which methods of diagnosis and treatments have the most beneficial outcomes for patients, in terms of curing, controlling and preventing disease.

Research has already discovered cures for many diseases.

Research is currently helping many people to control their disease and minimise their treatment.

Research is the only way we can continue to improve treatment of diseases and patient care.
