Research and Development


Welcome to the R&D website for the University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Trust.

ResearchWe know that research helps us deliver better outcomes for our patients and being a research-active organisation ensures that we are at the forefront of healthcare delivery.  Research also offers the opportunity for our staff to develop their skills and work collaboratively with multidisciplinary teams locally, nationally and internationally.

Our patients should be given an opportunity to try new treatment or procedures as part of research.  Patients tell us that taking part in research has been a positive experience and many of our patients travel significant distances to take part in the studies that we offer.

Innovation is also important.  All staff in our organisation should be asking, ‘can I do this better?’  Having a dedicated Innovation team provides support and advice and is a catalyst for new developments.

I am proud to lead the Research, Development and Innovation team who are making huge strides to support and deliver research and innovation.

Please contact myself, or any member of the team, and we will see what we can do to help.

Professor Chris Imray

Today’s research is tomorrow’s healthcare.  I am committed to making research happen for our patients and staff.  I am lucky to be part of a positive team whose ‘can do’ attitude is making a real difference to the way research and innovation are delivered here.  Please let us know how we can help.
