As a leading teaching hospital, clinical research is of vital importance to the development of better health and care for our patients, as well as to the development of the next generation of doctors, nurses and health professionals.

We know that the outcomes for our patients are better in organisations which are active in clinical research, and the benefits extend to patients who are participating in research as well as to all patients who are treated here.

NUH is highly active in clinical research, with ongoing clinical research studies in all areas of our hospitals. We host more than 400 clinical research studies, including approximately 250 complex clinical trials. More than 300 doctors and nurses are undertaking clinical research, ensuring that the benefits of new treatments, drugs and therapies lead to improved quality of care for our patients.

Through research we will make a real and lasting difference to the quality of clinical care provided by NUH, building on existing strengths and exploiting new opportunities, in partnership with our colleagues in the universities and research networks.
