Research studies

If you're a patient or use our services in some way, you could be part of a research study. The studies that we run cover a wide range of conditions, including: anxiety and depression, sexual health, diabetes, general healthcare concerns and much more.


Each study is different and will require you to do different things, depending on what is being investigated; some might ask you to fill in a questionnaire, while others might offer alternative treatments for your condition or require you to provide a clinical sample (such as a blood test).

You'll find some of our current studies listed below but there are many more that you can be part of, so drop our team an email if you're interested in finding out what else is running:
