Research and Innovation

IMG_8097 R&D team

We are an enthusiastic team promoting research within County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust. Our work ranges from small scale observational studies to large scale multinational clinical trials within a wide range of conditions.

Due to the research we do, our patients have access to some of the most cutting-edge treatments, and each year thousands of our patients volunteer to take part in these studies.
