The Emergency Department (ED) at St George’s actively participates in research projects through the work of the Clinical Research Unit. The unit is led by Professor Heather Jarman and brings together clinical staff and academics to find better care and treatments for patients and families in the ED. The research team comprises of research nurses, practitioners and clinical staff who support the research programme.

Research studies

Patients and their families are offered the opportunity to participate in relevant research. Most of the studies offered are supported by the National Institute for Health Research, which means the research is seen as important to many people or could provide a very significant development in clinical care.
