Research careers in health & social care

Add research to your career - Help us change lives 

Research plays an important role in the development of health and care services in the UK, and globally.

We are passionate about the contribution that research can make, and work collaboratively with our partners to deliver health and care research studies across the Wessex region, which covers Dorset, Hampshire, South Wiltshire and the Isle of Wight.

Why research?

If you want to leave work knowing that you’ve made a difference, you’re in the right place. Research changes lives. Find out how our research is making a difference by hearing from Wessex participants.

Evidence shows that research-active hospitals have better patient care outcomes and many health and care professionals say that they find the experience of being involved in research both positive and rewarding.

A career in research means that you will have an active role in ensuring we have the most up-to-date care and treatments available for patients and the public both now, and in the future.
