The Lansdowne Surgery has an established Clinical Research Unit which regularly takes part in UK and international studies.These studies are varied.
All the studies taken on by The Lansdowne Surgery are chosen carefully so that the practice as a whole can benefit from the research.
The overall purpose of research is to constantly update treatments, further medical knowledge and allow new developments in medicines. It has not, however, been our policy to test new medications. All our studies to date have been investigating established and widely accepted patterns of treatment, with a view to adjusting existing guidelines, depending on the test results.
We are currently involved with studies looking at tinnitus and asthma.
If you are asked to take part in any research, an information pack will be given to you. We would not use any patient details without their prior consent or knowledge.
