Research and development
As a research-active NHS Trust, we are proud to deliver important health research throughout North Yorkshire.
Research plays a vital role in improving outcomes by increasing our understanding of health and disease. This is done by developing and refining evidence-based interventions and enhancing service delivery.
Our dedicated research and development department provides a hands-on approach, delivering a high-quality service that offers advice and support to researchers, members of the public, patients, and industry partners about getting involved in research, study design, study set-up, and delivery.
Please visit our research and development website to find out more about our R&D service and how you can get involved in important research in our Trust
You can also follow us on X at @YorkResearch.
If you are a patient or member of the public interested in learning about important ways you can contribute to research within the NHS, please visit the NIHR Be Part of Research portal. Here you can find out more about research within our location, express interest in certain trials, and learn more about how you can contribute.
The patient and public section of our R&D website also provides further information on ways you can support us within the Trust.
Our research performance
This Trust, like other NHS organisations with NIHR contracts, is required to provide quarterly performance reports to the NIHR central commissioning facility.
These reports provide an overview of recruitment to clinical trials, including commercial contract clinical trials. See our submissions to the NIHR online.
If you'd like more information on these reports or any studies, get in touch with our research team by email: yhs-tr.Research.Governance@nhs.net.
We have approximately 100 research studies open to recruitment and last year we recruited over 4,500 patients to clinical trials
