RESEARCH

We are a Research Practice for the NHS Primary Care Research Network (South West) and participate in several research studies annually. We believe it is important to be involved in research in primary care as it has a vital role in improving treatments for patients. 

In addition the practice contributes anonymous data to a database(s) used for health care research purposes. The data collection scheme has been approved by the local Research Ethics Committee. This Committee oversees all research conducted on the data. The database holds anonymised data on millions of patients, and no patient will be traceable to anyone outside the Practice. 

If anything to do with the research would require that you provide additional information about yourself, you will be contacted to see if you are willing to take part; you will not be identified in any published results. If you would like to opt out of this data collection scheme, please let your doctor know and no data from your records will be collected for use in research. This will not affect your care in anyway. 

If at any time you would like to know more, or have any concerns about how we use your information, please contact Sandra Cole, our Practice Manager, on 01392 439868.
