We are a Research Practice for the NHS Primary Care Research Network and participate in several research studies annually. In medicine we are constantly striving to find the most effective treatments for common conditions and research is the key factor that helps up to provide this knowledge. As a practice we take great care to choose studies which will feel will benefit our patients. From time to time you may be invited to take part in one of our studies. There is no obligation to take part and if you decline it will not affect your treatment in any way.
