It's ok to ask - Ask your doctor or nurse about clinical research
Most research in the NHS involves people, often patients, and is usually referred to as clinical research.
Clinical research is at the heart of the NHS and an everyday part of the work done at Royal Berkshire Foundation Trust.
The aim is to find better ways of looking after patients and keeping people healthy.
Why is clinical research important?
We know a great deal about health, disease and medicines, but there is still a lot we don’t understand. Research can find crucial answers to the things we don’t know and provide paths to progress.
