All NHS organisations are expected to participate and support health and care research. Conducting high-quality clinical research helps us to keep improving NHS care by finding out which treatments work best. If you are asked about taking part in research, usually someone in the care team looking after you will contact you. People in your care team may look at your health records to check whether you are suitable to take part in a research study, before asking you whether you are interested or sending you a letter on behalf of the researcher.
This website gives you the opportunity to find out about health and social care research that is taking place across the UK and also to take part in trials that you may be interested in.

The study is open to anyone over 16 years of age (or under 16 with parental permission). Participants must reside in the UK. The average time taken to complete the online survey is approx. 15 minutes.
GP sites have been added to the survey so that when participants are asked where they heard about the survey, they should be asked to tick 'from a GP' and then further instructed to tick the name of the surgery in a drop-down list. Participants are advised to start typing the name of their surgery and drop-down boxes containing those words appear, so they don't have to scroll through a long list.
The survey is open to anyone; patients, relatives, friends, local groups, village social media sites etc. You can send the link to anyone.
