Maternity research team

Our Vision

Our vision is for Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust to be a world leader in clinical research developing new treatments which will as quickly as possible bring improvements for the women in our care.

The Women’s Health Research Team in Leeds wants every woman to have the opportunity to participate in a research study, as participation in clinical trials/studies has been shown to improve outcomes in women’s health by 25%.*  Therefore when you attend hospital you may be invited to take part in one of our research studies.

What we do

We provide the opportunity for women to take part in one of 17 maternity studies which are currently active within the Leeds Teaching Hospitals. 

If you would like any further information please do get in touch.
