We are proud to be part of the The NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN:KSS) the clinical research delivery arm of the NHS. The NIHR Clinical Research Network: Kent, Surrey and Sussex is hosted by Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
This is an NHS funded body with the central objective of developing the evidence base to inform the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management of illness and disease in primary care. See their website:
We are actively engaged in Research, mostly in the form of offering our patients the opportunity to be involved in projects run from larger Academic centres, but not involving travelling.
We will always ask for your express consent for involvement in Research, and will explain the full details of the Study prior to enrolling you.
Participation (or declining involvement) in a research project will not affect the standard of care you receive from the practice in any way.
