Research and Development

Clinical Research is a daily part of the work at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals. Research at the Trust has expanded over the years with studies open and recruiting patients in many clinical areas. The Trust’s reputation for research is that of a high performing NHS research active hospital.

We want to look into new ways to prevent, manage and treat diseases for the people of Blackpool and the Fylde coast. Clinical Research range from genetics studies and questionnaires, to highly complex, randomised controlled trials testing new drugs, devices and therapies on often rare conditions. The research staff are mostly the same doctors and health professionals you will see at your appointment.
