Research at Chesterfield Royal


At Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust we believe that participation in research is an integral part of our mission to deliver quality healthcare to our local community.

As a hospital our involvement in research gives our patients extra choices, choices they may not otherwise have had.

It gives the choice to help shape practice for the future, the choice to help answer long standing medical questions, the choice to help in developing new treatments that are potentially more effective or have fewer side effects, and the choice of trying an alternative treatment that may otherwise not have been available to them.

Although not all participants will benefit directly from taking part in research studies, they will, in some measure, be contributing positively to future developments in healthcare.
