Trust ranked in top 50 for research

The Trust has been ranked again in the top 50 acute trusts for research by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network (CRN), this time for both the number of research studies and the number of participants taking part.

Last year, the Trust took part in 127 studies, putting us in 44th place out of 153 NHS trusts. Our research team also had the highest number of participants ever, with 2,859 people taking part. This means we’re now ranked 49th out of 153 trusts – 12 places better than the year before.
