Research Ready Practice

The Village Surgery is proud to be a research active practice, partaking in a wide range of medical research studies. We have been accredited as a ‘Research Ready’ practice by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) by completing training and meeting strict standards including understanding the legal and ethical requirements that research accreditation involves.

Healthcare research is very wide ranging.  Many studies simply want to know more about how you cope with a particular problem whilst others are looking for patients with a particular diagnosis to help assess the effectiveness of a different treatment. As a patient of The Village Surgery you may be contacted from time to time to be invited to take part in some of these research studies. If you do not wish to be contacted about research please click here to let us know.

If you wish to find out more about research and what this may involve for you as a patient then please feel free to come in to the surgery and ask to speak to Simon.
