Research is an incredibly important way of moving medicine forward and Bewdley Medical Centre is very excited to become involved with the National Institute of Health and Research.
If we identify any patients that are suitable for medical trials (e.g. those of you with recent back pain or those with CKD) then you may be contacted about whether you are interested in taking part.
Join Dementia Research – Event
On Thursday 26th March 2020, in collaboration with the National Institute of Health and Research (NIHR) we are inviting our patients to Join Dementia Research, a database that registers patients and carers’ interest in taking part in dementia research. At Bewdley Medical Centre we are passionate about supporting our patients with dementia and their carers. We want to raise the profile of dementia and hope that by encouraging patients and carers to sign up to Join Dementia Research, we can better understand and manage this life changing condition.
The event will be held in the Community Learning Space from 11.30am and we have invited local volunteer, Nick Hoyle back to the surgery to host another Dementia Friends session. In addition, Sister Kathy Lee, one of our most experienced Practice Nurses and advocate for dementia will be giving a short talk about how we support those living with dementia at Bewdley Medical Centre.
You can sign up anytime for Join Dementia Research – For more information about Dementia Friends or to sign up to Join Dementia Research via their website, please visit https://www.dementiafriends.org.uk or www.joindementiaresearch.nihr.ac.uk/ respectively.
