Research at Cartmel Surgery, Central Lakes and Grange
Posted on 4 Dec 2019
Here at Cartmel surgery we believe in the importance of clinical research and actively support research studies in primary care, not only within our own practice but in the wider area. Dr Julie Colclough and Liz Butterworth (Clinical Research Nurse) have been working together as our research team for the last twelve months. They work here at Cartmel Surgery but also work with 5 other practices in the area to support them in carrying out research too. These are all rural practices and often patients in rural areas can miss the opportunity to take part in research. We are working very hard to improve access to research for all patients in this area.
When visiting the practice you may see leaflets and posters about the research we are doing or we may write to you to invite you to take part. Please take the time to read the information as you may find you want to take part too.
Research is about finding new knowledge that can lead to changes and improvements in treatments and patient care it is an important aspect of NHS work. All the research we are involved with is carried out under the banner of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) North West Coast Clinical Research Network
