Clinical research takes place in all hospital Trusts across our region and patient and public involvement is key to all the research that takes place. It is because of people like you, who get involved in clinical research, that we are continuously improving research and healthcare in the North East and North Cumbria.

"It's a good way to help out the researchers...what you have to say to them means a lot"

"This research project is really useful. It won't help Sam now, but it will help families in the future."


There are lots of different ways that you can be involved in clinical research trials. You may wish to be a participant in a study, be a part of a steering group or simply help us to share research findings.

If you would like to get involved you can visit the websites in the links section to the top right of this webpage to find out more, or you can contact our Patient, Carer and Public Involvement and Engagement team:
