Middleton Lodge Practice is working in collaboration with the Clinical Research Network: East Midlands (CRN:EM). The CRN:EM is part of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and is focused on enhancing and promoting research, ensuring that it is conducted in line with ethical procedures and for patient benefit. There is a local team working within Nottingham City and Nottingham County, facilitating research within primary care.

Middleton Lodge Practice is signed up to a Research Site Initiative Scheme; resulting in them choosing to be involved in appropriate and relevant research studies, focused on enhancing patient care and working on studies that are of particular interest and need for their patient population. We have started this year as our first year being a Level 1 site and have are involved with other surgeries in this area that also engage with the RSI in research studies. This couldn’t be done without the support and engagement of our patients and look forward to engaging in this project with as many patients as possible.

You may be contacted by the surgery directly for a study or you may receive contact from the study group, active studies that the practice take part in will be displayed below.
