We welcome feedback from everyone regarding their participation in our research projects. We use this to learn more about patient experience and to improve the research at the Practice.

From time to time we also use post-study questionnaires to gather feedback.

Local Study Teams are often recruiting “patient representatives” to discuss their experience of research to help design future research studies. Let us know if this sounds like a something you would like to take part in.

Please send all comments or queries you have about your research experience to: d-ccg.claremontresearch@nhs.net

Claremont has been involved in medical research for more than 10 years. Our role is usually to identify suitable people and help recruit them to the appropriate study. Our research is organised by the Clinical Research Network South West which is part of the NHS National Institute for Health Research. It is ethically approved and selected specially for primary care to help improve medical care now and in the future. You may be invited to take part in research. There is no obligation to take part and if you decline it will not affect your treatment in any way.
