Research at ECCH

A Research Active Organisation

We believe in the importance of research to promote and deliver better healthcare to our patients.

Research is a fundamental part of healthcare and helps to improve service delivery.

Health research can benefit everyone

 It can help to provide the best possible care for you, your loved ones and for future generations.

To find out more about the types of research ECCH deliver, how to get involved, or how to opt out of research activity, see our leaflets below:

Our tissue viability nurses in partnership with our leg ulcer clinics are working hard to identify potential participants who may be eligible to take part in this NIHR Funded trial to compare different compression therapies. This will help people make more informed treatment choices in the future.

This project is funded by the National Institute for Health and Research Health Technology Assessment Programme (project number 12/86/25). the views expressed are those of the author(s) and not necessarily those of the NHR or the Department of Health and Social Care.


Our podiatry team are identifying diabetic patients who are ready to be discharged from the service as their foot ulcers have healed. Those that are eligible are then invited to take part in the REDUCE programme clinical trial. The research being undertaken will test a new treatment to help patients get back on their feet after a foot ulcer.

Does living by the coast negatively impact palliative and end-of-life care outcomes?

ECCH is assisting with a research study exploring inequality of provision and access to palliative care in a coastal region.
