We support several different types of Primary Care studies which have been done ethically.

Supporting Research in Primary Care

Anyone registered with the practice could help shape the future of health care by considering and helping with research projects that you may be invited to participate in. Participation in any research is voluntary. You may refuse to take part in research without it affecting your usual medical care.

How patient information may be used for research?

All NHS organisations (including Health & Social Care in Northern Ireland) are expected to participate and support health and care research. The Health Research Authority and government departments in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales set standards for NHS organisations to make sure they protect your privacy and comply with the law when they are involved in the research. Our research ethics committees review research studies to make sure that the research uses of data about you are in the public interest and meet ethical standards.

BICS is a research study on the treatment of COPD. The study team is trying to find out if flare-ups of COPD can be prevented by using a tablet called Bisoprolol. Bisoprolol is a beta-blocker that has been widely used for a long time to treat heart problems, but it now seems that bisoprolol might also reduce flare-ups of COPD regardless of heart problems.
