Queen Square Medical Practice has won a national GP award and is also in the running for another prestigious accolade next month, for its clinical research efforts and achievements.
Queen Square Medical Practice has been announced as the winner of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and Clinical Research Network’s (CRN) Practice Award 2016, which rewards the efforts of primary care individuals and teams for supporting clinical research. The practice was also shortlisted as a finalist for the Health Service Journal (HSJ) Clinical Research Impact award for an entry titled ‘The Lancashire North approach to increasing research in the local population’. Now in their 35th year, the most sought after accolade in British healthcare recognises, celebrates and promotes the finest achievements in the NHS, and showcases them to the service’s most influential leaders.
Queen Square’s latest success follows on from being shortlisted as a ‘Best clinical research team’ at the North West Coast Research & Innovation Awards 2015.
Dr Simon Wetherell is the lead research GP at Queen Square whose other interests include diabetes. He is a senior partner of Queen Square Medical Practice and also an honorary lecturer at Lancaster University.
The practice’s research nursing team consists of Elley Sowerby, Julie Leach and Sarah Bland, who are all essential to the practice’s continued growth in clinical research activity.
We are all extremely proud of winning the RCGP Practice Award, as well as being shortlisted as a finalist for the HSJ Clinical Research Impact award. We are grateful that our hard work and dedication to clinical research has been acknowledged and rewarded by peers and colleagues within healthcare.
We would like to congratulate our team but more importantly thank the hundreds of patients that take part in research at Queen Square every year to help make the care that we provide even better for the future.
The Patient Research Experience Survey 2017/18
On average 30,000 participants take part in clinical research each year across the North West Coast. PRES seeks to understand participant experiences of taking part in research in our region and forms part of a national initiative involving all NIHR Clinical Research Networks. The results will be used to inform future strategy to promote research to patients and the public. We would be grateful if your organisation could promote PRES so that we can ensure as many research participants views are gathered. Click the link below to get involved!
