Station House Surgery is proud to be a Research active organisation- we are part of a network of local practices participating in high quality research activities funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network- North West Coast (CRN) https://local.nihr.ac.uk/lcrn/north-west-coast/
As a practice we believe research is a vitally important aspect of the high standard of care we provide to our patients. The NHS Constitution (2015)states Research is a core function of the NHS- it is a major driver of innovation and central to NHS practice for maintaining and developing high standards of patient care
How can you help and take part in Research at Station House surgery?
- A doctor or nurse may talk to you about a particular study and ask whether you would be interested in participating?
- You may be sent information through the post if you seem suitable for a study
