Research: What is Research?
Have you ever wondered how your doctor or nurse knows the best treatment to prescribe when you’re ill? The answer is simple – it’s all down to research studies which are designed to find ways to treat or prevent disease. The goal of research is to improve everyone’s knowledge about health and disease. Taking part in research may lead to new solutions to problems and thus improving health. Moreover, taking part in research may enable you to access new and innovative treatments before they’re available to others. Ilford Lane Surgery is research active. Taking part in research is “voluntary” and can be a rewarding experience. In this surgery your nurse or doctor might ask you to take part in a clinical research study. If you do not wish to take part it will not affect the care you receive.
We often have Medical Students sitting in with our GPs as part of their training. If you would prefer them not to be there please inform your doctor when you go in for your consultation.
Access: Our premises have suitable access for disabled patients and are easily accessible for wheelchairs
Zero Tolerance We do not accept any abusive or aggresive behaviour towards our staff. In line with NHS guidelines the practice may remove a patient from the list for threatening or violent behaviour.
