Research and Innovation


About us

Research and Innovation (R&I) is at the heart of patient care of Medway NHS Foundation Trust.

The R&I Department is instrumental in providing high quality patient outcomes through successful delivery of clinical studies. We work collaboratively with clinical and academic partners both within and outside the Trust to develop research and innovation.

Since 2013, Medway NHS Foundation Trust is the highest performing Trust for recruiting patients into research studies within the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Clinical Research Network. On average, 5,000 people participate in research every year at Medway.

There is Trust-wide engagement in research across most specialities. Our key research areas include Fetal Medicine, Critical Care, Perioperative Medicine/Anaesthesia, Children and Cancer.
