    Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust has beaten other trusts from across the country, including from London, Birmingham and Leeds, by topping one of the categories in a national NHS league table on research.

    The Trust topped the ‘volume of research’ category of the Research Activity League Table for 2016/17 published by the NHS National Institute of Health Research (NIHR). The table shows the extent of research activity across all NHS Care trusts in England, providing a picture of how much clinical research is happening, where, in what types of trusts, and involving how many participants.

    Andrew Pennington, Associate Director of Lancashire Care’s Research & Development Department, said: “In order to achieve such an outstanding level of work, the team is involved with a broad spectrum of studies. Research isn’t always a science fiction type scenario – recruits may simply need to fill in a questionnaire online. They don’t even need to be unwell. Some studies, for example, are for healthy volunteers who are willing to give a small amount of blood.

    “The Trust is also involved in some cutting edge trials; there are several Alzheimer’s commercial trials, with our patients having the opportunity to receive treatments that are not routinely available within the NHS. And, following the results of a recent study, changes in practice to support people with learning disabilities who have experienced severe depression are under way.”

    Over 10,000 participants have benefitted from taking part in research conducted through Lancashire Care over the past six years.

    The work of the Lancashire Care Research & Development Department was also recognised at the 2017 North West Coast Research & Innovation Awards where it was shortlisted in three categories. One member of the team, Professor Nusrat Husain, won in the Role Model of the Year category due to his extensive research cross cultural mental health care with an emphasis on South Asian women with post-natal depression.

    The department also jointly operates the Clinical Research Facility, which opened in April 2016. Situated at the Royal Preston Hospital site, the research facility is a joint venture between Lancashire Care, Lancashire Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Lancaster University to provide more opportunities for people in Lancashire and Cumbria to participate in high quality clinical research.
