Research

Copy_of_filesAt Thaxted Surgery we are actively engaged in Research. This helps keep our GPs and nurses up to date with new and emerging thinking, and sometimes allows us to offer treatments that otherwise might not be available. We only involve individual patients in research after a careful process to ensure the individual fully understands the implications and gives informed consent.

We work in partnership with The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), which is the research arm of the NHS. It's role is to improve the health and wealth of the nation through research. The Primary Care Research Network (PCRN) helps GP's and community services to be involved in research.

"Patients are at the centre of our work. We ensure that the research we support is relevant to and benefit those who use primary care services by involving patients and the public at all stages of the research process."
