Ensuring that our services are safe and effective is one of the most important things we do as an organisation. For our services to be the best they can be we need to be able to test new ideas and treatments to see if they work, and gather vital evidence to prove it.
Our dedicated research development unit brings together experts with clinical, research and academic backgrounds to lead on our work in this area.
They work alongside service users, carers, staff, commercial companies, charities, universities and other NHS Trusts to run a range of research and clinical trials in our services across Sheffield.
We also provide a research management and governance (RM&G) service to primary care across Sheffield, commissioned through the Integrated Care Board (ICB) at Sheffield Place.
By working together we are able to learn and share best practice that helps us to continually make improvements to the services we provide.
