UH Bristol celebrates International Clinical Trials Day with week of activities

This week, University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust has been celebrating International Clinical Trials Day (20 May) with a series of activities and information events, to highlight the importance of taking part in research.

Research teams from throughout the Trust have been showcasing the studies they're involved in as well as providing interactive opportunities for people to find out more about how trials are improving patient care.

International Clinical Trials Week

Events have included presentations from the Women's & Children's research team, highlighting the reproductive health research they've undertaken; the Bristol Eye Hospital team giving people the opportunity to try on a pair of glasses to see the effects of different eye diseases; an interactive display for children about why blood tests are taken, how they're done and how researchers spin blood; the chance to take part in an example of a randomised trial at the Bristol Haematology Oncology Centre; and having a go at making a smoothie whilst peddling on an exercise bike with the cardiology research team.

International Clinical Trials Days 2

There are a number of studies open at our hospitals, with more research starting every month.

If you would like to be involved, ask any member of your clinical team about our research and how you can make a difference.
