The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust is committed to the on-going improvement of quality and care for patients. Research is the only evidence-based method of deciding whether a new approach to treatment or care is better than the current standard, and is essential to diagnose, treat, prevent, and cure disease. Research is a core part of the Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, with over 4800 of our patients taking part in research studies in the last year. We support research in a diverse range of clinical areas, with varied types of studies; ranging from clinical trials investigating a new drug, to questionnaire studies aimed at improving patients’ quality of life.
