Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust Clinical Research

All of the studies running within the Trust have had stringent checks and Ethical Approval from Research Committees across the country.

Our Clinical Research Team work with clinicians to promote, facilitate and deliver national studies within the Trust. The aim of the Team is to make it easier for NHS staff and service users to get involved in research. We are always on the lookout for individuals that have an interest in research and want to find out more about taking part in research projects.

If any of the studies currently running are of interest to you and you think you may be eligible, you can register your interest by completing the Expressions of Interest form. One of our Research Team will make contact; you are under no obligation to take part and can pull out of the study at any stage.
