NHS Norfolk and Waveney CCG support research into illnesses and NHS services. Research is taking place all the time in the NHS – in hospitals, clinics and in the community. Research cannot happen without your help. Taking part in a project may not always help you directly, but you will be helping to develop services and treatments for future generations. If you are asked to take part in a research project, please consider getting involved.
More information is available on the Norfolk and Suffolk Primary and Community Research Office website including results from research studies and quarterly research briefings, including news on recent research developments and funding, new and ongoing research studies and research findings, are available on their website.
To find out what research is happening locally you can visit the The Norfolk & Suffolk Primary Care Research Office website or the The UK Clinical Trials Gateway.
The Public & Patient Involvement in Research (PPIRes) project
It offers a unique opportunity to involve lay people in all aspects of the research process – from decisions on what research should take place to the interpretation and dissemination of research findings. We support a group of 60 volunteers in Norfolk and 10 volunteers in Suffolk. These PPIRes volunteers are patients, carers and members of the public that are prepared to give some of their time to work together with health professionals and researchers by giving a lay perspective on their research.
More information, including how to get involved, is available on the website.
