Hospital clinical research team up for award

02 Nov 2017 - Press Release

Stepping Hill Hospital’s clinical research team are up for a regional award to celebrate the very best in local research.

They have been shortlisted as ‘Research Team of the Year’ in the annual awards organised by the National Institute for Health Research - Clinical Research Network Greater Manchester, which co-ordinates studies in the area.

Clinical research is a vital part of enhancing care for the future. Stepping Hill Hospital’s team oversees studies involving around a thousand local patients each year; in areas such as heart disease, gastroenterology, ear, nose and throat, cancer, stroke, surgery and children. Many of these studies involve patients testing new drugs to see how effective they can be, or questionnaires to help improve hospital services.

The team recruited 50 active research studies in the 2016/17 financial year, a 19% increase on the previous year; and the biggest such increase for a hospital-based trust in Greater Manchester.

The winning teams will be announced on Thursday 9th November in Manchester.
