Research teams around the region get involved in ICT Day
NHS Trusts and partners across the region marked International Clinical Trials Day last week, with a wide range of activities, involving staff and patients in promoting the work of research departments.
Medway NHS Foundation Trust research staff sent “Thank You” messages to many of their colleagues at the Trust without whose help and support they could not provide research to patients.
In Surrey, the Research team at Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust met patients and staff across multiple sites to shine a light on the valuable work the team do, and talk about the benefits of public involvement in research.
Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust hosted a number of research stalls in clinical areas, offering clinicians the opportunity to learn more about the research opportunities available.
University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust took to Twitter, with colleagues from across the Trust sharing their photos and videos promoting research.
Hungry researchers were also catered for at Brighton and Sussex Medical School, where the Clinical Trials Unit team celebrated with a homemade chocolate orange cake. While at Royal Surrey NHS Foundation Trust, tea and biscuits were in plentiful supply as the Trust hosted colleagues from the University of Surrey, and CRN KSS and the NIHR Royal Surrey CRF for a series of talks on different aspects of the research happening at the Trust.
