Research Active Practice

We are a ‘Research active’ practice which means we take part in a wide range of studies. As of August 2019, LMP has been officially granted Research Ready accreditation to reflect our commitment to high quality research. Research helps to enhance knowledge on how to treat conditions, prevent illnesses and form the best care across society and within the NHS. Volunteering to get involved may mean filling in questionnaires, surveys, talking to one of the research team, or trialling a new treatment or drug.

Our base is at the University site, but we are active across all sites. We are a small team but growing, and want to get as many patients involved in research as possible.

A strict code of conduct is at the heart of all of our work to make sure data is always confidential.
