The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Children's Hospital Clinical Research Team

Welcome to the Children’s Clinical Research Team

Research is a priority in the Leeds Children’s Hospital, and we aim to allow families the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of quality research, contributing to local, national and international studies.

What we do

We provide an infrastructure that supports the recruitment of children and young people into appropriate trials. The Team set up and co-ordinate the clinical trials available within the Children’s hospital.

This includes:

  • Offering information to patients and families regarding open trials they can participate in.
  • Recruiting patients and coordinating care.
  • Collecting information and results.
  • Ensuring research is carried out appropriately and following international guidelines.

The Children’s Clinical Trials Team aims to promote shared knowledge and best practice, ensuring clinical research care is delivered to a high quality by staff with appropriate skills.

Studies are available for Children in all specialties within the Children’s Hospital.

Please look at our strategy to view our priorities and goals.
