ECCH is a research active organisation.
We believe in the importance of Research and Development to promote and deliver better healthcare to our patients.
We currently run research projects within our community services and at the following practices: The Millwood Partnership, The Beaches Medical Centre, Bungay Medical Practice, and Solebay Health Centre.
We are committed to expanding our research portfolio, and work closely with the National Institute for Health and Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network in the Eastern region to deliver research studies effectively to our local area.
Being involved in research is not just about testing new medicines; there are lots of different types of research you can become involved in.
Participating in research is totally voluntary. Your care and treatment will not be affected if you choose not to take part.
You may be asked to participate in a study by a number of people, such as your GP, a clinic nurse, a hospital consultant, a therapist or a trial research nurse.
You may be asked before you come into hospital or whilst you are an inpatient or an outpatient here. You may be contacted after you have been discharged.
Ask your GP or your clinical team about what research may be relevant to you.
