All ELHT staff involved in the diagnosis, treatment, care, or prevention of illness, injury and other physical and mental impairments of patients and service users (including those who provide supervision and training, and those in management roles) are invited to complete the Trust's first Research Capacity and Context Survey (using Google Chrome)
Participation in the survey is really important in helping us to improve approaches to support the development of research capacity and activity at the Trust.
Whether research active or interested, or not, everyone's contribution matters. It takes about 10 minutes.
There will be a prize draw of £300 towards a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) related activity once the survey has been completed.
Survey closes 21st August 2020.

The Trust’s efforts in the fight against coronavirus have received media attention. Senior Research Nurse Wendy Goddard discussed the current research efforts at East Lancashire Hospitals, including support for the RECOVERY trial and REMAP-CAP, during an interview which featured on BBC Television’s North West Tonight programme.
The appearance followed an earlier interview on BBC Radio Lancashire where Wendy took time out from a busy week of entering patients into COVID-19 research studies, and supporting the newly formed COVID-19 research team, to describe the treatments under investigation. Previously, headlines also appeared in the local press, including the Burnley Express and the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.
The Trust currently has nine COVID-19 research studies open, with data for 1301 patients entered into the research. Details of the studies can be accessed on the ELHT research webpage.
Michelle Stephens thanked ELHT Principal Investigators for supporting the COVID-19 research, and the research and clinical teams who’ve enabled the set-up of the new studies and the entry of East Lancashire patients into the research.
"Never in my 25-year career in NHS research has research been more critical and important than it is today. I would like to thank our patients and their families who have, and are taking part in coronavirus research at the Trust. They are not only helping patients today but healthcare in the future. The tireless effort put in by the Research Support Office team, Research Nurses, Midwives, Support Officers and Principal Investigators along with Pharmacy Clinical Trials Team and other support departments, in setting up the new COVID-19 studies and offering these to our patients across a 7-day week, cannot be under-estimated. I would like to thank everyone for all of their hard work and continued dedication. I am so very proud of our contribution towards a better understanding and treatment of COVID-19.”
