Research Champions

The purpose of a research champion is to improve awareness and promotion of clinical research, Increase patient’s opportunity to take part in research and improve departmental working relations. This links in with the trusts CARE values and the 2 year vision. 

The Research Champion role involves helping to identify suitable patients for research studies in their area. Specific patient criteria cards are provided to the champions to assist with this. Once suitable patients are identified we ask that you alert the research team who can then approach the patients regarding a trial they may be eligible for. In some cases, we may ask for assistance with some data we are required to collect for example recording of observations or blood gas results that we are unable to access.

If you would like to become a Research Champion or have any questions, please contact Mandy Gill on ext.3990 or via email on mandy.gill1@nhs.net
