Patients & Public research information

For Patients and Public

At the University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust, we provide a diverse and vibrant research environment and we are proud of the ground breaking research carried out by our investigators and researchers.  

We are a research active organisation because:

  • Research is important in helping us to improve existing treatments and services, to better understand diseases and find new treatments.
  • Clinical trials offer an opportunity to contribute to the efforts to find better treatments for the future.
  • Taking part in research could mean that you may be one of the first people to receive the newest treatments.

Within these research web pages, you will find useful information about how you can get involved in the development of a research project. 

You can read patients’ testimonials in the “ Patient testimonials ” page. We also welcome your comments, stories and  feedback about research.
