Get involved with research

The purpose of research is to benefit patients, and we are committed to involving them in the design and delivery of studies, as set out below, as well as encouraging them to participate in trials and other studies.

Please visit our main research section for further details:

Research at Oxford University Hospitals

There are a number of ways that you can get involved, for example planning and designing research studies and advising researchers as part of a Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) group.

Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust follows the Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) Strategy implemented by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC).

The strategy is available on the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre website:

Patient and Public Involvement - Oxford BRC

To see clinical trials within OUH that are actively recruiting volunteers, please visit:

Clinical Research Studies - Oxford University Hospitals

A separate website promotes patient involvement in research by 'match-making' patients, carers and other members of the public who are interested in medical research with researchers working in hospitals and universities across the Thames Valley.
