Research Studies

The Charlbury Medical Centre is a research active practice and is part of the Thames Valley and South Midlands Clinical Research Network [National Institute for Health Research]. We actively enrol patients into studies looking for ways to improve health and treatments. Benjamin Haydon-Johnston our Paramedic Practitioner acts as Principal Investigator and is our Research Lead, Dr Pippa Brookes-White assists with background searches and paper based projects. 

We work with academic and commercial institutions (such as Oxford, Southampton and Keele Universities, and Abbott Ltd pharmaceutical company) for medical research purposes. Your consent will be sought before enrolment in any study; however, if you never wish your data to be used for the purpose of research you may opt out either by clicking on the following link www.nhs.uk/your-nhs-data-matters/manage-your-choice or by contacting the NHS Digital Contact Centre on 0300 303 5678.

Sometimes we are asked for disease-based information for research purposes, and anonymised/pseudo-anonymised population data is requested. We contribute anonymised data to CPRD (Clinical Practice Research Datalink) for public health research, RCGP RSC [Royal College of General Practitioners Research Surveillance Centre].

Individual patients cannot be identified from this information, and we would not seek an individual’s consent for these purposes. Pseudo-anonymised data is provided to IQVIA for medication and disease pattern research; however, if you have chosen to opt out of your data being used for research through the National Data Opt Out, your choice will be respected and your date will not be used for research.

If you would like to take part in any of our studies or find out more about them please book a telephone consultation with our Research Lead- Benjamin Haydon-Johnston. 

We also have a research board within the main corridor of the practice which has posters for patient attention and also explains CPRD- Keep an eye out for updates!
