Find out about research

Health and social care research matters to us all. 

Without research, many of the treatments and types of care that we routinely receive today in the NHS wouldn’t be available.

Members of the public have an essential role to play, since without people agreeing to take part in research studies these improved treatments and care wouldn’t exist.

What’s more, research is a routine treatment choice for you in NHS Wales. You may have already heard of clinical trials, but these are just one type of research study.

To find out more, watch our short video about research.

Please keep an eye on our events for our next ‘Let’s talk research’ event.

These are a great way to find out more about research in a relaxed, fun and interactive, family friendly environment.
