Research Site Initiative and National Institute for Health Research

The Welby Group is committed to helping deliver Clinical Research across all our Practices, working alongside colleagues from the National Institute for Health Research and East Midlands Clinical Research Network. We’re proud to give patients an opportunity to take part in research, so that together we can develop new treatments and medicines for the future.

An overwhelming majority of patients who participate in research studies have a positive experience. There are many different types of research available for people to take part in. Last year more people in the East Midlands took part in research in Primary Care settings than anywhere else in the country. Join them and help us to improve healthcare.

We will update our website with any studies the Practice is currently taking part in. Please let us know if you are interested in being a part of the studies we are running. There may also be other studies that are being run that the Practice isn’t involved in. You can volunteer, find out more information and see stories from others who have volunteered in research by going to: 

Join Dementia Research

As a Research Practice we also support Join Dementia Research. Dementia affects more than 850,000 people in the UK. Research into dementia offers hope for patients with dementia and their families.

Only through research can we understand what causes dementia disease, develop effective treatments and improve the care of those living with dementia. For this research to take place we rely on volunteers of people both with and without dementia to take part in vital studies.

If you would like further information about the Join Dementia Research service, or would like to sign up to help beat dementia by volunteering, you can go to
