Research is vital in providing the evidence we need to transform services and outcomes” – The Five Year Forward View (Department of Health, 2017)
We do research to improve treatments, diagnosis, prevention and healthcare for the benefit of all patients. We already know a lot about health, disease and medicines in the NHS, but there is so much more to find out. Research can answer these uncertainties and provide the evidence to drive better treatment outcomes for patients within the NHS.
Clinical research is at the heart of UHSussex because it is the only way that we can continually improve treatment for patients. Through high-quality clinical research, partnering with our clinicians, academic and industrial partners, we can also learn how to improve NHS healthcare for future generations.
We know that the more people who take part in research, the faster progress we can make to improve health and care; so we’re determined to make it as easy as possible for the public to learn about UK research and to take part.
If you are a patient or member of the public wishing to find out more about research at University Hospitals Sussex please see our taking part in research pages, or to find out more about being involved in research as a member of staff please see our information for researchers and health care professionals pages.
