Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust is a research active trust and hosts the NIHR Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre. It is our goal to improve patient care by developing and discovering new treatments and interventions.

Research and your care

As part of your care, we will inform you about opportunities to participate in relevant research unless you ask us not to.

To ensure that everyone who uses our services hears about research opportunities we will sometimes contact you about research you may be eligible to take part in.

You do not have to take part. It is up to you to decide whether to find out more about the research we contact you about
