About us


We are determined that our research and innovation should improve an increasing proportion of our patients’ (and other patients’) experience of our services and health outcomes.

Providing services to over 2.5 million residents of Nottingham and surrounding communities, we are well placed to carry out a wide variety of health research, including our specilist areas:  

  • Clinical Haematology
  • Dermatology (in partnership with the Centre of Evidence Based Dermatology)
  • Hearing (in partnership with the NIHR Nottingham Hearing Biomedical Research Unit)
  • Health Care of Older People
  • Musculoskeletal (in partnership with the Arthritis Research UK Pain Centre)
  • Respiratory (in partnership with the Nottingham Respiratory Unit)
  • Stomach, Intestine and Liver (in partnership with the Nottingham Digestive Diseases Centre Biomedical Research Unit)

More than 300 doctors and nurses work to ensure that research and innovation are embedded in our routine clinical practice and that research findings lead to continued improvements in the quality of care and the treatments available to our patients.

Our clinicians also work closely with many regional and national health and research organisations, including the The University of Nottingham, to make advances in health research that will directly benefit patients.
