The Burwell Surgery are pleased to inform you that we are a research active practice and support high quality medical research through the following organisation.
Primary Care Research Network East of England (PCRN EOE)
Who we are
The Primary Care Research Network East of England is one of eight regionally-based Local Research Networks which make up the national Primary Care Research Network in England. The Network is funded by the Department of Health.
What we do
Our vision is to provide improved treatment and services for NHS patients by conducting important and relevant research to the highest standards working in partnership with patients, researchers and primary care practitioners in efficient and effective ways.
We do this in areas for which primary care has particular responsibility. These include disease prevention, health promotion, screening and early diagnosis, as well as the management of long-term conditions, such as arthritis and heart disease.
Why we do it
Clinical research is, and has always been, fundamental to the work of the NHS. Only by carrying out research into "what works" can we continually improve treatments for patients, and understand how to focus NHS resources where they will be most effective. All the research that we support is driven by the priorities of the NHS and the Department of Health, and informed by the views of patients and their carers.
Patients and public
If you are a patient or carer, or perhaps a member of public with an interest, you can help research. You could become a participant in clinical research study that may benefit many people. You could even help shape clinical research by becoming more actively involved and having a say.
