Research and clinical trials are an everyday part of the work done in the NHS.
The people who carry out research are mostly the same doctors and healthcare professionals who treat people. Their aim is to find better ways of looking after patients and keeping people healthy.
There are many different types of research. They cover a range of activities, from working in a scientific laboratory to carefully noting patterns of health and disease, and developing new treatments.
Health and social care research looks at many different issues, from illness, disease and disability to the way health and social care services are provided by the NHS.
