A new publication profiles the medical research carried out at Chelsea and Westminster—and how research can help provide faster diagnosis, new treatments and improved patient care.

Making patients better—the role of research’ follows three patient journeys in the specialties of respiratory disease, HIV and research into childbirth and newborns to demonstrate how research taking place at Chelsea and Westminster has influenced their care.

In her introduction to the publication – which was launched officially at the hospital Open Day on May 10 – Chief Executive, Heather Lawrence says: “As an NHS Foundation Trust achieving excellence is central to our service delivery ethos.

“This involves excellence in teaching and research, and we believe that by undertaking research that is closely aligned to our patients’ needs we will ensure that Chelsea and Westminster stays at the leading edge of healthcare delivery.”

There is a chance to find out more about this fascinating subject at a Research and Development Open Day which is being held at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, 369 Fulham Road, London SW10 9NH from 11am-6pm on Wednesday July 16.

The Open Day will include a number of posters and activities to highlight the wide variety, high quality research that has been and is currently being carried out within the Trust.

The day is aimed at patients and the public as well as staff and provides an opportunity for our local community to find out how research at Chelsea and Westminster is improving healthcare.

The aim of the open day, as well as increasing the profile of research within the Trust, is to encourage patients and the public to become involved in various activities that we are currently developing to improve the quality of research and increase public knowledge.
