Award-Winning Research Team at Park Surgery
We have been accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners as ‘Research Ready’. This means we are prepared to participate in the high quality research studies that the NIHR CRN offers.
In 2016, we were awarded Highly Commended in national research awards run by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network and the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP). For their website with all the details, Please Click Here
In addition, we were the highest recruiter nationally for the Garfield Heart Study and among the highest for the CANDID research project (see the Research Studies tab for specific details of all our projects).
This photo shows some of the Research Team at Park including Dr Elizabeth Fisher (Research Lead, front row in the middle), other GPs, nurses and administrative staff. Many other staff not shown are also actively participating.
There is a key requirement for staff members involved in clinical research to have undertaken Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training to ensure they are qualified to deliver research within the General Practice setting. GCP training provides the standard and guidelines to which all research is conducted. All staff involved in the recruitment of patients to research studies possess up-to-date GCP certification.
