Find out how research improves patient care in the NHS

Date published: 15 May 2019


Local residents and Trust members can find out how research improves diagnosis, care and treatment for patients in the NHS at a free talk at Fairfield General Hospital.

The event is one of a series of Medicine for Members sessions, which are aimed at giving an insight into key elements of the hospital’s daily work.

Taking place on Tuesday 21 May from 2pm - 3pm in the Auditorium at Fairfield General Hospital’s Education Centre, the event is open to all:

Among the speakers will be Professor Jimmy Limdi, Consultant Gastroenterologist at Fairfield General, who has an international reputation for his research to help improve the lives of people with inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. He will explain why research into these conditions is so essential and how it can make a huge difference to patients’ lives.

Research Nurse Dawn Johnstone will talk about her involvement in one specific trial and how the results from this trial have ultimately led to better treatments for patients with prostate cancer.

And Professor Steve Woby, Director of Research Operations, will explain how research is an everyday part of every NHS specialty and why he wants to see more patients involved.
