Research Ready

Bildeston Health Centre is an active participant in General Practice research. We are keen to be a part of new ideas and treatments. Of course one cannot just blindly research things so we are part of the Royal colleges research ready group of practices.

Research Ready® is a quality assurance programme for all research-active UK GP practices. It is designed in line with the UK Research Governance Framework’s legal, ethical, professional, and patient safety requirements. The programme serves to provide information, support and guidance to accredited practices in research; both to assist with meeting the requirements above, and with considering and conducting research.

Dr Hainsworth is the lead in this and he has been Accredited to do so.
