New Trust initiative receives support from almost 1,600 service users

06 Jul 23

The Research and Development Team at HPFT have had almost 1,600 service users sign up to be contacted about opportunities to take part in research.

Clinical research is an important part of the work undertaken at HPFT, as it is it enables the Trust to provide its service users with the latest and best care available.

Volunteers who take part in research play a crucial role in improving the lives of thousands of people every year. Nearly all research needs help from those affected to make this possible.

Speaking about the success, Dr Chetan Shah and Prof Tim Gale, who are research leads at HPFT said:

"We are hugely proud of the team for what they have achieved. To be able to draw upon the experience of such a large number of service users and use those experiences to make improvements is just fantastic."

Trust research is focused on four key areas:

  1. Children and Adolescent Mental Health
  2. Neurodevelopmental (Learning Disabilities)
  3. Adult Mental Health
  4. Dementia and frailty
