Health and care research involves people of all ages and backgrounds, from all parts of the UK.

The broader the range of people, the more likely it is that the results will benefit as many people as possible.

Some people that choose to take part can have a condition or illness, whilst others are healthy. Some may live or work in a social care setting. Others may choose to work alongside researchers to help design and shape research.

New medicines, scanning technology, talking therapies and joint replacements are just some examples of treatments that have been made possible through research.

Without people like you taking part in research:

  • We wouldn’t understand the impact of a healthy lifestyle on conditions like heart disease, mental health and diabetes
  • We wouldn’t know how to screen for cancers or be able to find treatments for COVID-19
  • We wouldn’t know how to improve the way social care is delivered

Health and care research helps us to understand how to make people’s lives healthier and happier.

Be part of something amazing, Be Part of Research.
