Newton Place Surgery is a research active practice. We are currently taking part in several National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) high quality studies. Research is part of NHS work, giving patients better access to the possible benefits it brings. In the last year, a total of 1,390,483 participants chose to take part in clinical research across England. This is almost double the number of the year before, despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to these patients, we are able to continuously learn about a wide range of medical conditions and the best ways of treating them.

During your visit to Newton Place Surgery you may be invited to take part in one of the research studies we are running. We may also have written to you to tell you about a research study you might be eligible to participate in.

  • You will always receive clear information about what taking part in a research study will involve. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and obtain further details about a study.
  • You are under no obligation to participate in any research project. Your care and your relationship with your doctor or nurse will not be affected in any way whether you decide to take part in a research study or not.
  • By taking part in these studies, we hope to help improve care for our patients in the future.

Studies At Newton Place

With the help of our patients, Newton Place has managed to successfully recruit participants into over 30 different NIHR research studies. These have varied from projects on low back pain, anxiety and depression, gastrointestinal disorders such as IBS and more recently, several important COVID-19 studies. The team are also always on the look out for upcoming research that will benefit our patients.

Below is a list of studies we have taken part in the past, those that are currently being conducted at the surgery, and those that we are looking to start up in the near future. Click on the tabs below if you want to read more about these projects and how you can get involved.
