    Research Active Practice

    Avonside Health Centre is a Research Active Practice

    The practice team are delighted to announce that Avonside Health Centre is a research active practice working with the National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network (NIHR-CRN).

    We work in close collaboration with a team of GPs, research nurses and facilitators based in Warwick Medical School. If a patient is eligible to join a research study running in our practice, a GP or other healthcare professional will provide written information. Taking part in a research study is voluntary and can be beneficial to patients who participate in them.

    Examples of research projects include:

    • investigating timing of taking blood pressure medication
    • investigating respiratory infections
    • management of heart failure
    • how to increase physical activity
    • ways to help people stop smoking
    • the use of self-monitoring of blood pressure

    Our GP Research Lead within the practice is Dr Colliver
