Winchcombe Medical Centre is a ‘Research Ready Accredited Practice’ and member of the Primary Care Research Network. We participate in a variety of research studies that have been approved by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). This means we are working to find ways of improving the care we provide and help to inform future developments in health care.
You may be invited to participate, either by a letter through the post or during an appointment at the surgery. All clinical research is thoroughly checked and approved by ethical committees to ensure that it is appropriate and safe to perform. You will always receive clear information about what taking part in a research study would involve. Your participation is entirely voluntary and can be withdrawn at any time. You are under no obligation to participate in any research project and your care will not be affected in any way if you decided not to take part.
