The Emergency Department (ED) at St George’s participates in a number of research projects through the work of the Clinical Research Unit. In 2018 / 19 the unit enabled over 1000 patients to participate in research, more than any other Emergency Department in England.

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 has 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 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.
