Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust is involved in a range of research programmes that aim to improve treatments for our patients.

How research helps patients

  • Research is essential to help us get a better understanding of what happens when someone falls ill. Research also helps us to learn how to prevent illnesses happening and improve quality of life

  • All our research projects are essential to advancing medical knowledge and ultimately improving treatment for patients in the future

  • If they want to take part, we offer our patients the chance to get involved in clinical trials, and to participate in research

  • This means that some of our patients can often be the first to benefit from the very latest treatments
