City of Research

The City of Research website has been launched: This campaign is aimed at encouraging more volunteers from across Bradford, Airedale and Craven to sign up to take part in research.

This initiative has been brought to life by the four main NHS organisations in the district – Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust; Airedale NHS Foundation Trust; Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust; Bradford District and Craven Clinical Commissioning Group – and Bradford Metropolitan District Council. There are 14 different areas of health and therapy research to choose from, including heart, cancer, diabetes, mental health, dementia, women’s health and maternity, respiratory, eye health, digestive disorders, child health, and public health.

By joining the research registry, people can choose from many different ways in which they can contribute – from clinical trials of current or new treatments, to taking part in questionnaires or focus groups to testing medical equipment.
