Research and clinical trials

At various times, the Glastonbury Surgery may invite patients to take place in research projects or clinical trials, which all take place on NHS sites and are carried out by NHS approved staff.  You may be asked to visit the surgery, or you may be asked to travel further afield to a nearby hospital.

These research projects and clinical trials help the NHS understand how to treat a particular disease or condition.  Your time will be greatly appreciated by those conducting the research or trial.  Some patients regard taking part in these studies or trials as an opportunity to give something back to the NHS, and taking part gives them peace of mind knowing that is anything about their condition is bothering them, the research team is there to give them information or support.

The Research Team at Glastonbury Surgery consists of Dr Alastair Corfield (GP Research Lead) and Helen Clough (South West Peninsula Community Research Nurse)
