Children's Clinical Research

Research is a priority at 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

As one of the largest Children's Hospitals in the UK, Leeds Children's Hospital is proud to host a plethora of research activity across our diverse range of clinical services and specialities. Over 1,000 babies, children and young people were recruited to clinical studies in 2017/18, and our ambitious future plans are laid out in our second Leeds Children's Hospital Research Strategy (2020-2025).

Our studies

Non surgical treatment of Perthes (NON-STOP)


The NON-STOP (NON-Surgical Treatment Of Perthes’ Disease) project, a National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) funded PhD currently being undertaken by Adam Galloway and team.

Adam is a children’s physiotherapist at the Leeds Children’s Hospital and NIHR Clinical Doctoral Research Fellow at University of Leeds. The overall aim of the PhD is to understand the experiences of the people currently giving/receiving care for Perthes’ Disease and to develop a digital intervention (an application for a smart device) to improve self-management for the condition.
