Patients and Public in research

Without people, patients and volunteers there would be no clinical research. We are grateful for all of those who support our research and who volunteer to take part in a range of studies and clinical trials.

Nottingham is a leader in Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) in research. Our work with people affected by hearing loss, with arthritis, respiratory diseases, mental health, as well as our involvement of young people, is recognised in the UK and internationally.

Take part in research

We put people at the heart of the research that we do across our hospitals. We offer a range of opportunities for you to share your views, help shape future research trials or to take part in current research trials.

Nottingham is research

Last year we launched a new strategy for developing greater involvement in research, through the NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre. This strategy is called, Nottingham is Research and it aims to work with local communities to promote learning and development in clinical research, along with greater understanding of the ways in which research is changing healthcare for the better.
