Improving and developing medicine and social care requires research. The team at Cadbury Heath Healthcare are actively working on numerous research projects. We are truly grateful to our patients who support us by participating in these exciting research projects and helping us improve care for the future.

We have won an award from CRN West of England for our work in research in 2023.

The research team consists of Dr Lucy Pocock (Lead GP) and our administrator Becky.

We work alongside a wide range of both clinical and non-clinical staff in the set-up and running of our research studies. These includes doctors, nurses, pharmacists, reception, and admin staff.

Taking part in research

Taking part in any research study is always voluntary. We respect patients’ decision to decline or withdraw at any point of a study, this will not affect your care in any way.

You may be invited by letter, phone call or text if you meet the criteria for a study. We are always happy to discuss any questions or provide more information. You can contact us at anytime and a member of the research team will call you back.

Is our research safe and ethical?

All our research studies have been approved by the appropriate ethical and regulatory authorities. Our research team are fully qualified and trained to safely perform the studies. Full information is provided about the study and sufficient time is offered to discuss and answer any questions prior to consenting and taking part.

Some studies only involve collecting agreed information. However, if a medicine product is offered, the potential risks and benefits will be explained by our doctors and nurses verbally and in writing so that you have plenty of time to decide if you would like to take part.
