Research Changes Lives
Research can save lives, find new treatments and help people be healthier and happier for longer
Docotors, nurses and other health and social care professionals learn more by doing research. But this is only possible when people , including children and young people ,take part in research studies.
In fact, last year, nearly three quarters of a million people took part in health and social care research
Why take part?
- You may want to improve health and care for everyone, or because someone you care about has an illness
- If you have an illness or condition , you might be able to try a new treatment
- You might learn more about your condition
- Your health may be monitored more if you take part in some studies
You will help researchers learn important new information
Ask your doctor , nurse or healthcare professional about research you can take part in
