Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust supports the national aim to increase the number of patients who have the opportunity to participate in research as well as enhancing the nation’s attractiveness as a host for research. The Government’s Plan for Growth was published in 2011 and it sets out the requirements for each local provider to initiate and deliver research to time and to target.

Initiating Clinical Research

The national target is that each study should recruit the first patient within 70 days from the date the NHS organisation receives a valid research application.
