The Surgery is committed to continuing research. All the studies have been assessed by the NHS and have full ethical approval. The surgery receives funding for research from the South West Peninsula Clinical Research Network (part of the NHS) and from the individual studies that we take part in. The research team undergo regular training in taking informed consent from patients taking part in studies and the surgery has Royal College of GPs Research Ready accreditation.
Our practice is supporting vital COVID-19 research. As part of this, we are helping to carry out a national priority research study called PRINCIPLE.
