Current research activity
Taking part in the 100,000 Genomes Project
Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of a select group of hospitals taking part in the 100,000 Genomes Project. This involves collecting blood samples from certain patients and their relatives, to increase our understanding of certain cancers and rare diseases. We want as many of our patients as possible to donate blood, to help us improve patient care through research.

At Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, we pride ourselves on contributing to the development of new treatments and surgical techniques to help improve the care of our patients.
How research helps our patients
Research means turning promising ideas or interesting theories into real benefits for our patients.
We are currently involved in over 100 clinical trials and other studies ranging from testing new surgical devices or drugs, to studies aimed at helping us to improve our understanding of mental health issues.
However, research projects cannot get started without the participation of our patients. We rely heavily on the thousands of patients we treat every year to volunteer and take part in research projects.
This arrangement is mutually beneficial because we get to see how new treatments work in practice and our patients benefit from ground-breaking treatments earlier than they would otherwise.
