“Research is essential in working out which treatments work better for patients” – (NHS National Institute for Health Research)
The Luton and Dunstable University Hospital has an active Research / Clinical Trials Department and you may be approached by your Consultant or a member of the Research Team with information on a clinical trial or research study.
If you are a patient or carer, or perhaps a member of public with an interest, you can help research. You could become a participant in a clinical research study that may benefit many people. You could even help shape clinical research by becoming more actively involved and having a say.
For more information please see the leaflet on ‘Understanding Clinical Trials’ ‘Understanding Clinical Trials’.
For Research, the Luton and Dunstable University Hospital comes under the auspices of the Clinical Research Network: North Thames – for more information please visit their website.Supporting the national ‘OK to Ask’ campaign
