For health professionals research has a really important role in supporting evidence-based decision making and treatments. We are gathering information on our website that has arisen from research studies which have taken place in our area. This is a developing resource which will grow over time. We also provide links to accessing published evidence and research findings, many of which you may have access to through your NHS organisation or academic institution.

How we can help

Repository

You can access our repository here. Through our repository you can also access information about how to find and understand evidence reports.

Events

You can find information about events here, including events where research findings are shared and discussed.

We hold twice yearly themed evidence events, where research findings are shared directly with commissioners and health care professionals. You can read about our most recent events below:

If you would like to be informed about future events please contact us.

Practice Protected Time

We regularly hold stands at commissioner-led practice protected time events. We use these events as opportunities to engage directly with primary care professionals in our area, sharing information about the work we do and local research activity.

If you see our team at one of these events then please do feel free to approach us with any questions you have about NHS research or to share and discuss your own experiences of taking part in research in the area. Your feedback will help us to ensure that we respond to your needs, providing information that you will find valuable and pertinent. We also hope to help to address any barriers that may be preventing you from becoming engaged with research.
