Our research team studies disorders of the blood clotting system, and many of our patients have lifelong conditions such as haemophilia. Our aim is to incorporate opportunity to access research studies in to everyday clinical practice, and as a result we are an integral part of the team in the haemophilia unit where our clinical service is based. At present we have a Research Sister?, Clinical Trials Data Officer and three Consultants who act as Principal Investigators on our studies in addition to clinically managing our patients.
Our portfolio has expanded rapidly over the last three years and we now run a variety of academic and commercial studies with several interventional studies. We are participating in several pioneering treatment trials such as gene therapy in haemophilia. We work closely with the West Midlands Clinical Research Network and have plans to further increase the size of our team over the next few years. Our patients are enthusiastic about being offered the chance to take part in research and recently had the opportunity to attend a patient engagement event that we ran.
Applicants need to demonstrate a willingness to train for extended roles which include venepuncture, cannulation and administration of medications. We can offer you continued professional development and the opportunity to be part of a dynamic and high quality clinical research team.
