This Practice is part of a network of general Practices in Cambridgeshire & Peterborough who host medical research on a regular basis. As such we are accredited as being 'Research Ready'.
Findings from research studies can be used by our GPs, nurses or other health professionals to enable us to offer you the most appropriate care.
Anyone registered with the Practice could help shape the future of healthcare by helping with research projects that you may be invited to participate in.
You may be approached by a member of this Practice to participate in a research project. Please consider any patient information leaflets you may receive about research carefully. This information may be sent to you or given to you by a nurse, doctor or other healthcare professional.
Taking part in a research study can vary greatly and might involve completing a questionnaire, agreeing to an interview with a researcher or taking part in a clinical trial.
Participation in research is voluntary. You may refuse to take part in research without it affecting your medical care. Should you wish to decline all research invitations from the Practice then please let us know so that we can ensure we have recorded your preferences.
Over 500,000 people took part in research in England last year

Join Dementia Research is a national service that makes it easy for anyone to take part in vital dementia research studies. People with dementia or memory problems, their carers and anyone who is interested can sign up.
Only through research will we find new and better ways to prevent, treat, care for and one day beat dementia. Simply register your details and a researcher will be in touch when an appropriate study becomes available. You do not have to take part in any particular studies. It is always your choice whether or not to take part.
