Research & Studies

This practice is part of a network of general practices in Cambridgeshire & Peterborough who host medical research on a regular basis. As such we are accredited as being ‘Research Ready’.

Findings from research studies can be used by our GPs, nurses or other health professionals to enable us to offer you the most appropriate care. Over 500,000 people took part in research in England last year and anyone registered with the practice could help shape the future of healthcare by helping with research projects that you may be invited to participate in.

You may be approached by a member of this practice to participate in a research project. Please consider any patient information leaflets you may receive about research carefully. This information may be sent to you or given to you by a nurse, doctor or other healthcare professional. Taking part in a research study can vary greatly and might involve completing a questionnaire, agreeing to an interview with a researcher or taking part in a clinical trial.

Participation in research is voluntary. You may refuse to take part in research without it affecting your medical care. Should you wish to decline all research invitations from the practice then, please let us know so that we can ensure we have recorded your preferences. If you want to know more about research or want to get involved,  you can get information from www.crncc.nihr.ac.uk/resources

 

Below are some of the studies and research that the Spinney Surgery is either taking part in or plan to take part in the future:

GloW (Glucose Lowering through Weight Management) The GloW study is being run by the University of Cambridge and is evaluating whether a tailored behavioural weight management programme is better for glucose control than education alone for those with Type 2 Diabetes.

You may be called to take part in this study if you have Type 2 Diabetes.

SAFER (Screening for Atrial Fibrillation with ECG to Reduce stroke) The SAFER study is run by the University of Cambridge and is working to answer the question:  is screening for atrial fibrillation (the heart condition responsible for one in ten strokes) effective and cost effective in reducing stroke and other key outcomes compared to current practice?

You may be asked to take part in you are aged 70 and over.

The IMP²ART study from the University of Edinburgh aims to help general practices embed supported self-management into routine asthma care.

You may be asked if you would like to participate if you have asthma.
