Danetre Medical Practice is an award winning, accredited research and training practice. We have won awards for the best Practice Research Team and Non Clinical Researcher of the Year (Jo Gilford – our Practice Manager). The practice runs several carefully chosen research studies at any one time with research being an integral part of what our practice does on a daily basis.

Taking part in research may benefit you personally, but it also leaves a legacy behind for the improvement of health and treatment of future generations. Participation in whatever small way is appreciated, and if you ever want to know more, we are more than happy to answer questions, so why not drop us an e-mail.

Participation in any study is entirely voluntary, and your decision to take part or not will not affect the care you receive here at Danetre Medical Practice. It is important that you tell your GP or Nurse that you are on a study if you come to see them so they can let the research team know. Your reason for seeing a healthcare professional may be important in terms of the study.

Please be assured we do not give any patients details to anyone outside of this practice.

One of the main aims of the campaign is to empower patients to ask about research opportunities that could be available to them if they have a medical condition they are receiving treatment for. It’s also about reminding all healthcare professionals from consultants and doctors to nurses, midwives and carers, whether research-active or not, to be research-aware. We know that research professionals across the NIHR actively promote opportunities to patients about research but there is a much wider opportunity to encourage all healthcare professionals to get involved in and support research activity.
