Bingley Medical Practice is a ‘Research Active’ practice.
Bingley Medical Practice is Research Ready accredited which means that we meet the requirements of the Royal College of General Practitioners for undertaking healthcare research in primary care in the UK.
Bingley Medical Practice takes part in high-quality medical research through the Clinical Research Network : Yorkshire and Humber ( formally Primary Care Research Network) within the NHS National Institute for Health Research. NHS medical research helps to improve the health and well-being of the nation.
Primary care is the setting for the great majority of NHS patient contact, and will play an increasing role both in the care of patients with long term conditions and in disease prevention and early diagnosis.
We participate in a wide variety of studies covering disease areas such as Arthritis, Asthma, and Diabetics.
We aim to give our patients the chance to take part in research if they want to.
Your participation in the research studies is completely voluntary and if you decide to take part, you can withdraw from research studies at any time, without giving reason and without penalty or effect on the standard of care that you receive.
If you have any questions or would like to receive further information please ask at Reception to arrange to speak to Dr Bridget Pitcairn, GP.
Please check our research notice board for further research information.
