We are a teaching practice and offer training for Registrars and Medical Students and are also registered to undertake research activities.
In most cases if you are eligible to take part in a study, the practice will contact you by letter or a clinician will approach you about a study. If you do not want to take part in any research please let a member of the practice team know so that this can be marked on your medical notes.
Dr Carsten Dernedde is our GP research lead. Caroline Mansfield our Advanced Nurse Practitioner is the practice Research Nurse, although other members of the practice team are involved in research. The research Data Manager at the practice is Jordan Howard.
